ANST Interest Group Highlight:

The Pennsylvania State University

Why is it important for your institution/graduate program to have an ANST interest group:
Our ANST interest group helps us to foster a sense of community for our trainees interested in pursuing careers in neuropsychology. This is true at all levels, from undergraduate students through our graduate students. It is a space for us to discuss our shared interest in brain-behavior relationships and seek and provide advice and guidance about the next steps in our careers.

Past and future interest group initiatives/programming:
Past programming includes an Internship Panel to discuss preparing and applying to internship, Robin’s Wish Documentary screening and discussion about Lewy Body, Alumni Networking and Professional Developmental Panel. Upcoming programming includes Journal Club prior to a Neuroscience Seminar Speaker (Dr. Tracey Covassin), community initiative including an MS walk, and co-sponsored event with other ANST interest groups on preparing and applying to internship.

General research and clinical interests of group members: 
TBI (the spectrum from concussion and mTBI through more moderate to severe), aging with brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and secondary factors that influence cognition (mood, sleep, pain).

If you are interested in collaborating, please contact student representative, Kaitlin Riegler, M.S. (ker45@psu.edu). You can also find two neuropsych focused labs which comprise the Penn State ANST group on Twitter: @NittanyNeuro and @PSUBrainLab
