Dr. Anthony Wagner of Stanford University spoke in the National Bar Association's 89th annual convention about work from his lab that is positioned at the intersection of law and neuroscience. This work included findings from Dr. Melina Uncapher on how our brains respond differently to faces from our own race vs. other races, and how that may affect memory. The findings have implications for eyewitness memory that includes other-race faces.
IAN's Director of Public Communication, Dr. Kevin Weiner, published a correspondence piece in Nature on an intriguing and previously undiscovered historical fact linking Walt Whitman and neuroanatomist Andrew Parker. Hint: it's through their brains!
IAN's Director of Public Communication, Dr. Kevin Weiner, and Stanford professor Kalanit Grill-Spector, published a review paper in Nature Reviews Neuroscience introducing a new organizational scheme for how the brain categorizes visual information, like facial recognition and object recognition.
The work of IAN's co-founder and CEO, Dr. Melina Uncapher, is featured on a PBS special, Brains on Trial with Alan Alda. She is featured in episode one, highlighting her work with Dr. Anthony Wagner on memory detection using functional brain imaging, as well as their work using wearable technology to study real-world memories in the brain.
