9/10/20: Both R01 Notice of Awards are in! We are starting two projects: one on neural mechanisms of visual scanning of social scenes (with Clay Curtis) and the other on predicting naturalistic social cognition in individuals at risk for developing schizophrenia. And we’re hiring–we are looking for a research assistant, a clinical rater, and two post-docs. Join us!
8/18/20: We’re looking for post-docs! Apply here: https://www.applicantpro.com/openings/nyspi/jobs/1469355/NY-New-York/New-York/Research-Scientist
7/28/20: Sophie Arkin’s attention has been published: not only are the attention networks intact in schizophrenia, they may also be used to compensate for deficits in other networks. Congrats Sophie! https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nicl.2020.102348
6/9/20: Finally! Our first study of eye-tracking of social situations in schizophrenia: individuals with schizophrenia don’t look at moving facial expressions in peripheral vision, affecting the ability to use vision to understand everyday social situations: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/psychological-medicine/article/what-you-see-is-what-you-get-visual-scanning-failures-of-naturalistic-social-scenes-in-schizophrenia/4A4C1EE5F71A528C598ED5A81975CD55

See Gaurav’s new commentary in this week’s edition of Biological Psychiatry!
Gaurav will be speaking at the Columbia Transational Neuroscience Initiative luncheon on 9/14, and at the Duality’s End conference at Austen Riggs on 9/29.
Gaurav was notified that he won a David Mahoney Neuroimaging Award from the Dana Foundation! This grant will allow the lab to extend its study of the TPJ-pSTS and visual scanning of social situations to individuals at high-risk for developing schizophrenia to see how these deficits develop.
