J.P. de Ruiter has been invited to give the first Jon Oberlander Memorial lecture on December 17, 2018 in Edinburgh, UK.

In Fall 2018, Sepideh Sadeghi successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis on computational models of word learning to earn a combined Computer Science/Cognitive Science degree.

Cognitive Science researchers Matthias Scheutz, J.P. de Ruiter, and Nate Ward are (Co)PIs in a new project funded by the Air Force.

Felix Gervitz, one of our CogSci grad students, has a fellowship through NASA (NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship) and got to spend last summer at Ames Research Center in California with the Intelligent Robotics Group doing really cool research on human-robot teaming and cognitive robotics for space exploration. He plans to spend all his summers there until he graduates!

MIT Press has just released Prof. Richard Chechile's book this month. The title of the book is Analyzing Memory: The Formation, Retention, and Measurement of Memory. This book contains a systematic examination of memory for single-cell organisms to complex human models of experience.

Prof. Elizabeth Race and Prof. Ani Patel received a GRAMMY Museum® grant entitled "Orchestrating brain rhythms to enhance memory across the lifespan."
