Congratulations to faculty member Morgan Barense on being a co-recipient of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award for her research on the link between memory and perception. Morgan's research demonstrates that there is an intertwined relationship between these two areas that have traditionally been considered separate and distinct. These findings can provide insight into impairment caused by Alzheimer's disease and, in doing so, provide new procedures for diagnosing those with dementia. Further to this award, Dr. Barense took part in an Q&A interview with CNS (go to https://www.cogneurosociety.org/overturning-modular-view-memory-brain-aiding-alzheimers-patients/ to read the interview). Morgan will give her award lecture on Monday, March 26, 2018 in Boston, MA.
