Paul D. Coverdell Neuroimaging Program Fellowship From
the John and Mary Franklin Foundation
Three graduate students are supported as Research Fellows through this program. Two years of graduate school support will come primarily from Franklin Foundation funds, with secondary support being committed through the student's faculty advisor (may include funds from the Psychology (or other home) Department, or from grant support). Through coursework and laboratory experience, students will learn to perform functional brain imaging using techniques such as dense array EEG, MEG, and MRI/fMRI.
Each Fellow will be provided with funds for conducting research projects
and for travel. As part of Fellowship training, students will organize several symposia in which nationally-recognized experts in functional brain imaging will present lectures and consult with UGA faculty and students on brain imaging research at UGA. For additional information,
