Alan Anticevic, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry, has received a 2014 Janet Taylor Spence Award for Transformative Early Career Contributions from The Association for Psychological Science (APS).
The award recognizes the creativity and innovative work of promising scientists who represent the future of psychological science. The award was presented to Anticevic at the 2014 APS Annual Convention in late May.
Anticevic's research interests focus on cognitive neuroscience of psychiatric illness as well as functional neuroimaging analysis methodology. His research combines task-based, resting-state, pharmacological functional neuroimaging, and computational modeling approaches to understand neural circuit dysfunction in disorders such as schizophrenia.
Anticevic has been the recipient of a NIH Director's Early Independence Award, a Young Investigator Award from the International Congress on Schizophrenia Research, and a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant.
