Congratulations to Samantha and Jackie, each of whom has received a SHARE award from the UConn Office for Undergraduate Research! From the UConn OUR, “the SHARE program supports undergraduate research projects in the social sciences, humanities, and arts. SHARE is designed especially for students in the earlier stages of their college careers as a means of introducing students to research in their chosen field and of developing skills they will need for further research projects.”
Samantha will examine neural and behavioral changes following high intensity treatment in chronic aphasia. Her faculty mentor is Dr. Jen Mozeiko. Jackie will examine effects of attention on lexically-informed perception learning, working with faculty mentor Dr. Rachel M. Theodore.
