Ironson Distinguished Speakers Student Awards

Every year, the University of Miami Psychology Department selects one student per area as an Ironson Distinguished Speaker. This year, our graduate student Steven Anderson received that honor for the Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience area of our department, for his work on the neural bases of expressive suppression and neural empathy for pain. Associated with this award is a cash prize, as well as the opportunity to present his work at the Ironson Distinguished Speakers Student Colloquium, which took place on Thursday, April 25, at 3:30 PM. Steven gave a talk titled “Expressive suppression modulation of the empathic neural response to pain”. Great job, Steven!
