The CAN lab once again attended the annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society this year hosted for the first time in Boston. We enjoyed local delights including Lobsta and Red Socks. Ryan Brisson, Matt Kmiecik presented the work they have been doing with Dr. Morrison on the time course of verbal analogical reasoning. Laura Stockdale (LUROP Research Mentoring Program) and Rob Palumbo (LUROP Research Mentoring Program, Mulcahy Scholar) presented their work exploring how media violence can change the neural correlates of emotional face processing. Will Beischel (Provost Scholar), Bianca Wells (McNair Scholars Program), Izabelle Rymut (Johnson Scholar) presented their work on how differences in learning strategies impact the neural correlates of face-name memory during retrieval practice. All three of the posters we presented won People's Choice Poster Awards which were given to the 8 outstanding posters from the conference. Travel was supported by the department of psychology, the McNair Scholars Program, the Johnson Scholars Program, and LUROP Travel Awards.
