Members of the Cohen Lab recently participated in the 10th annual STEAM Career Showcase for Students with Disabilities at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, NC. Students had the opportunity to learn about the brain, play brain trivia, and make brain hats and pipe-cleaner neurons!
Earlier this month, members of the Cohen Lab attended the Flux 2022 conference in Paris, France! This was the first in-person Flux conference in two years. Congrats to Sikoya Ashburn, Arianna Cascone, Mackenzie Mitchell, Tehila Nugiel, and Mac Woodburn on your impressive talks and poster presentations!
Last week, our graduate student Marc Rudolph successfully defended his dissertation! Marc’s dissertation combined machine learning and network science to identify factors that could distinguish otherwise healthy aging individuals from those with or at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. His work also aimed to identify individuals who may be at a greater risk of converting to Alzheimer’s disease using demographic information and baseline assessments of cognition and functional brain network organization. Congratulations, Marc! We’re excited to see what your future holds.
Our graduate student Mac Woodburn received the Earl and Barbara Baughman Dissertation Research Award! This award is given to two of the top graduate students in the Psychology and Neuroscience department to support their dissertation research. Congratulations Mac!
