Dylan Rose, a graduate student in Psychology Professor Peter Bex’s lab, is studying eye movement biometrics, connecting eye movement behavior and visual attention to both ophthalmological and neurobiological problems. Bex’s Translational Vison Lab will be teaming up with the Museum of Science’s Living Laboratory, a research program at the museum that brings visitors and scientists together to learn about science while conducting research.
Northeastern Psychology Professor Rebecca Shansky will head to Gaborone, Botswana this August to partake in the Dialogue with the Dalai Lama, hosted by the Mind and Life Institute. She will share her research on the brain’s response to stress and trauma on stage with other neuroscientists, activists, and scholars.
