The Scientific Research Network on Decision Neuroscience and Aging (SRNDNA) selected two AD&D Lab students for research awards.
PhD student Lindsay Conner received an SRNDNA Mentorship/Collaboration Award, which will provide funding to support her training in advanced neuroimaging analysis under the mentorship of Dr. Tor Wager at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Dr. Wager uses cutting-edge neuroimaging methods and analysis to study brain mechanisms underlying pain, emotion, and motivation.
Incoming undergraduate research assistant Michael Gordon received an SRNDNA Diversity Summer Research Award, which will provide funding to support his training in behavioral research on decision making in aging. Michael will contribute to studies that examine how age affects learning about health topics and risky decision options.
Congratulations to Lindsay and Michael!
