With support from a $2.9 million grant, Jamie Edgin is testing the effectiveness of an innovative touchscreen children's memory assessment that started as a homemade project.
Psychologist Jamie Edgin studies human memory at the University of Arizona, where her research often involves working with very young children and children with intellectual disabilities.
Congratulations to Jamie Edgin, who has just been awarded a 5-year grant from NICHHD. The goal of the multi-site study (with UC Davis and Drexel University) is to develop valid and sensitive measures of cognitive functioning in individuals with fragile X syndrome and Down Syndrome that can be used as primary outcome measures in clinical trials.
Congratulations to graduate student Aubrey Wank. She is the first recipient of the fellowship established in honor of Dr. Al Kaszniak, to support first-year graduate students with research interests in the neuropsychology of emotion and aging.
