Presentation by Dr. Sarah Garfinkel

Dr. Garfinkel is a Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London who focuses her research on the way emotion processing is altered in a range of clinical conditions including anxiety, autism, PTSD and psychosis. In addition, she is interested in how aberrant emotional processing can shape cognition to augment fear memory and alter attention.

FOA - NEW Brain Aging Pilot Project Award Program 2022

Application Due December 1st,  2021 at 11:59 CT

More Info Here:

NEW Brain Aging Pilot Project Awards are intended to develop novel research infrastructure and projects that will advance the science of EWB and brain aging in specific areas requiring interdisciplinary partnerships or collaborations. They will serve two primary purposes. First, we seek to expand the quality, quantity, and translational impact of research into the mechanistic relationships between brain structure and function on one hand and EWB in older adults on the other. Second, we  intend to engage investigators new to the study of brain aging and EWB – both those who are early in their careers and have yet to define a topic area for their programs of study as well as investigators who have established research programs in other areas that they can productively extend to include NEW Brain Aging topics.
