Notable Awards (2021)

  • FABBS Undergraduate Research Excellence Award
    Congratulations to Jiani Li on being selected as one of only three recipients in the nation of the Undergraduate Research Excellence Award by the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences! The purpose of the award is to acknowledge and honor undergraduate student investigators who have conducted research of superior quality and with broader societal impact. In this very sophisticated honors thesis, Jiani has been writing code to create representational similarity analyses (RSA) that allow her to examine whether similarities in different participants’ emotional responses to political videos corresponds to the degree of neural synchrony (i.e. common neural fluctuations across time) in those participants. Prof. Matt Lieberman is Jiani’s faculty mentor.
