The Martinos Center's Lisa Feldman Barrett challenges the reliance on essentialism in the study of emotions in this New York Times Op Ed.
Martinos investigators receive funding for study of neurodegenerative diseases
Two members of the Laboratory for Computational Neuroimaging have been awarded new grants.
Iman Aganj, a recently promoted faculty member in the lab, received his first funding award. His proposal, “Connectomic Biomarkers of Alzheimer’s Disease Observed in Multi-Synaptic Pathways,” was selected for funding through the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center, Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC), and MGH Neurological Clinical Research Institute’s “2014 Neurodegenerative Diseases Pilot Study Grants” program.
The lab's Martin Reuter also received funding through the program, for his proposal, “Longitudinal Shape & Morphometry Analysis for High-Sensitivity Detection of Surrogate Biomarkers in Neurodegenerative Disease.”
Congratulations to Iman and Martin!
