Lead Researcher(s): Dennis Wall, James Landay
System uses computer vision algorithms and emotion classifiers integrated into gameplay to detect emotion in the child’s face via the phone’s front camera to determine agreement with the displayed prompt, along with other features such as gaze, eye contact, and joint attention.
NeuroDiscovery | SIGF - Graduate Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Isabel Low
Behavioral state—such as alertness or exhaustion—dramatically impacts how our brains function. Yet, in spite of the key role that it plays in cognition, how behavioral state influences brain function remains a central mystery in neuroscience.
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Tal Iram
Dr. Iram will use brain intrinsic and systemic regulators of aging, in an attempt to accelerate maturation of human-derived brain organoids. This has the potential to produce the first ever aged human brain 3D cultures and identify factors which accelerate brain aging.

Developing a protein-engineered nerve implant that mimics the biochemical and mechanical cues of native tissue in order to enhance the potential for neural regeneration following injury.
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Miguel Garcia
Dr. Miguel Garcia believes that identifying the mechanism of myelin wrapping is important in understanding neural development and is a critical first step towards creating much needed therapeutic approaches to stimulate remyelination in patients with demyelinating diseases.
NeuroEngineering | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Dante Muratore
Dr. Dante Muratore's goal is to design the next generation of neural interfaces that allow single-cell resolution when communicating with the nervous system. To achieve this, he has conceived a new way of reading information from the neural system.
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Jessica Nowicki
By performing a molecular and neural network analysis across behaviorally divergent pair bonding species, Dr. Jessica Nowicki will use the power of comparative analysis to reveal core mechanisms that regulate pair bonding.
NeuroDiscovery | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Daniel Bear
Dr. Daniel Bear propose to augment state-of-the-art neural networks with two biologically-inspired properties: the ability to represent the physical world as it changes over time and the ability to learn from self-created signals rather than explicit human instruction.
