Melisa's recent paper on behavioural markers of young-onset Alzheimer's disease was featured on U of T Faculty of Medicine's News: https://medicine.utoronto.ca/news/tanz-centre-findings-may-help-detect-young-onset-alzheimers. Well done, Melisa!
Congrats to starred first authors Emily and Juliana! Our new paper, "Identifying the neural dynamics of category decisions with computational model-based fMRI" is now published at Psychonomic Bulletin & Review! Read it here: rdcu.be/ckd27
Melisa Gumus recently published a longitudinal study showing that the prevalence of anxiety and depression is higher in patients with young-onset of Alzheimer’s than those with late-onset, and the difference remains significant over time: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11357-020-00304-y. Congrats, Melisa!
A very much overdue recap of many successes and achievements over the past year!
Very excited about our new paper: "Ventromedial prefrontal cortex compression during learning". vmPFC coding akin to goal-directed dimensionality reduction and tracks attention weights from learning models. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-13930-8

Excited for our new paper published in Journal of Neuroscience! This paper is a companion review for the SfN 2019 minisymposium co-chaired by Dasa Zeithamova and Michael Mack.
Very excited to welcome Juliana Adema, Emily Heffernan, and Gaeun Son to the lab as new graduate students!
Excited to have our new paper published: "Comparison of semi-automated hippocampal subfield segmentation methods in a pediatric sample"
