Aging of working memory: Biophysical, neural, and cognitive
components - National Institute on Aging - The purpose of
this grant is to develop new interpopulation fMRI measurement
methods and to elucidate the cognitive changes that
accompany normal aging. (NIH # 5R01AG029523-02)
2010 Friends of Brainhealth Distinguished New Scientist Award
- This grants funds an investigation of the neural bases of
working memory decline in Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
by using functional neuroimaging (fMRI) and Diffusion Tensor
Imaging (DTI) to understand the contribution of both brain
function and brain structure to memory declines in MCI.
2009 Friends of Brainhealth Distinguished New Scientist Award
- This grants funds a comprehensive investigation of the neural
basis for Multiple Sclerosis by using neuroimaging and behavorial
techniques to characterize the structural, functional and
behavioral changes of the disease.
Attention and executive function in the cortical and subcortical
circuitry of Gulf War Veterans – Veteran’s Administration
Large Grant - The purpose of this grant is to explore the
neural substrates of Gulf-War related cognitive change.
A pattern-based analysis of neural mediators of working memory
deficits in Autism.
This grant is to develop new methods and techniques for fMRI
data collection and analysis that will elucidate cognitive
and neural changes related to Autism.
