Spring News!

We have had a very exciting end to our Spring semester.  First, Katie Bottenhorn was accepted into graduate school and will be attending Florida International University in the Fall.  Second, Anna Kirkland was awarded with an Undergraduate Research Fellowship (URF), a highly competitive award that will provide her with a stipend and some travel funds to  present her research.  The fellowship starts this summer and will continue through the Fall.  Anna will be working on the brain imaging data that we collect as part of our nutrition study, which will launch in August/September.  Third, Lauren A. J. Kirby got word that her very first, first-authored manuscript has been accepted for publication!  Her paper, ‘Affective mapping: An activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analysis’ will be published in Brain & Cognition (as a side note, all data used to conduct the analyses in the manuscript are provided in the ‘Data‘ section of our website).  Please congratulate these amazing young scholars if you see them around!

Oh, and here’s Anna’s “action shot” that we staged for her URF…
