Recent Faculty Grants & Awards

Jeffrey M. Zacks, associate chair and professor of psychological and brain sciences in Arts & Sciences and professor of radiology at the School of Medicine, received a four-year $250,000 grant from the James S. McDonnell Foundation to study event cognition “in the wild.” This project will take the research into the world, where people actually experience events. Key to the research is “Unforgettable,” an infrastructure developed over the past decade by collaborator Simon Dennis, of the University of Melbourne, which helps people enrich and better understand their own memories while collecting data for a scientific exploration of event comprehension and memory.
