Grant awarded to Nate Parks!



Dr. Nate Parks, faculty member in the Department of Psychological Science, was recently awarded a 3-year NIH grant entitled "Short-Term Plasticity in the Human Visual System: The Role of Cortical Feedback."  The project is a set of EEG and transcranical magnetic stimulation (TMS) experiments that examines how feedback from higher-order cortical visual areas drives neuroplasticity in areas lower in the visual hierarchy.  Read more about Dr. Parks' work at the website for his lab, the Cortical Dynamics Laboratory.
