My third OHBM Merit Abstract Award! Off to Hawaii!

Great news! Martin Tik, Lucia Navarro, and I have each been selected to receive a Merit Abstract Award for the 2015 OHBM Annual Meeting in Honolulu (Hawaii, USA). After a double-blind peer-review process, only the top-rated abstracts were selected for this competitive award. Martin Tik will present his work on ultra-high field functional MR imaging of the human brain during an Aha!-moment as a poster. Lucia Navarro will give an oral presentation on the benefits of her newly-developed MRI acquisition coil in combination with transcranial magnetic stimulation. My effective connectivity study on emotion processing in the extended amygdala network shall be also presented in one of the few oral presentation slots. Aloha!

Science Slam

Last night I participated in a science slam. Unlike traditional academic talks, they want you to present your research without any slides and figures – which is kind of haaard if you do neuroimaging. However, I got a bit creative and won the audience vote with my talk Ins Hirn einischaun (Lookin’ into the brain). To my big surprise the Austrian Minister for Science, Dr. Karl-Heinz Töchterle, was also in the audience.
