Big summer!

It has been a busy summer at the Neuroplasticity Lab – too busy for frequent updates. Here are some highlights:

  • In May, Dr. Martin gave an invited talk at SISSA in Trieste, Italy for the launch of the International Manifesto of Trieste for women in science, highlighting her work in creating the Women in Cognitive Science organization.
  • Dr. Martin also gave an invited address at the Association for Psychological Science annual convention highlighting our work on cognitive network neuroscience.
  • Dr. Fischer-Baum spent much of the summer as a visiting researcher at the Basque Center for Brain and Language in San Sebastian, Spain.
  • We have been busy attending conferences all summer long.
    • In May, the T-SCAN lab presented their research at the Social and Affective Neuroscience conference and the Society for Biological Psychology in New York.
    • In July, the Fischer-Baum lab presented their research at the International Workshop on Language Production in Nijmegen, Netherlands and the Society for the Scientific Study of Reading in Brighton, UK.
    • In August, the Fischer-Baum lab and the Martin lab will both be attending the Society for the Neurobiology of Language conference in Quebec City.
  • We have also been busy publishing some awesome research now available online:
