We are thrilled to announce that a major research grant from the National Science Foundation was awarded to assist UA in purchasing an MRI machine! This will certainly enable increased collaboration among students and faculty in the educational neuroscience concentration with other departments and researchers at UA, as well as increased access to innovative neuroimaging methodologies.
“The research enabled through this MRI facility will boost our understanding of the neuroscience of learning and neurodegenerative diseases, bringing benefits to our entire state as well as the broader society. There’s a lot of collaborations we are developing not just on the biological side of neuroscience, but with computational researchers, as well.” - Dr. Sharlene Newman, ALRI executive director and co-lead on the NSF grant.
