The INS Student Liaison Committee also operates a google group especially for students. The google group is intended to provide a novel means of communication amongst neuropsychology trainees on professional development topics. The google group is a place where students can pose questions regarding training, provide peer consultation, and share ideas. The SLC will also post INS programming updates and upcoming deadlines.

History of the
INS-SLC

At the 38th Annual Meeting of INS in Acapulco in 2010, the Board or Governors organized a meeting to solicit comments from students and trainees about how to better serve associate members and increase their involvement. As a result of this meeting, the Society formed a student-run standing committee with specific goals to address student and trainee professional development needs, foster student contributions to neuropsychological science, and provide opportunities for student involvement and leadership within the INS

In the summer of 2022 Josh will begin his APA internship in the Adult/Geriatric Neuropsychology Track at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. He is supported by an F31 NRSA from the National Institute on Aging to study the relationships between biological and cognitive markers of preclinical Alzheimer’s disease in mutation carriers (and non-carrier family members) of an autosomal dominant Alzheimer’s disease (ADAD) mutation whom are from Antioquia, Colombia. During the COVID-19 pandemic Josh has also worked on research projects related to teleneuropsychological assessment and remote computerized cognitive testing. Josh was previously the INS SLC Member-At-Large and is excited to continue serving the trainee members of the INS as co-chair of the SLC!

Communications & Outreach Representative
Fareshte is a second year doctoral student in the clinical psychology program at Drexel University. Originally from Anaheim, CA, Fareshte received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UC Irvine. Prior to Drexel, she worked with an acute stroke population, utilizing EEG to study recovery and its feasibility in the emergency room. Her current research is focused in adult neuropsychology and her research interests include utilizing neuroimaging and neuromodulation to study brain injury relationships with neural function, structure, and behavior. She is interested in using these techniques to guide the development of targeted symptom treatments for neural diseases.

Maximiliano Folmer

Member at Large
Maximiliano is completing his first year in the Master of Science in Cognitive Neuroscience and Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Padua, Italy. He completed his undergraduate studies as a Licensed Psychologist at the Universidad Católica de Córdoba (UCC), Argentina in 2020. His research thesis focused on the reliability analysis of the Multicultural Neuropsychological Scale (MUNS) supervised by Dr. Luis Alberto Fernández. During his undergraduate studies, he worked as a research assistant collaborating in the development of the MUNS and as a neuropsychology intern at Cortex Neuroterapias, Dr. Fernández's neuropsychology private center. After graduating, he was hired as a graduate research assistant and as head of practical assignments for the neuropsychology course at UCC. Also, he worked as a licensed psychologist at the Instituto González Palau, a neuropsychology center associated with a private hospital, designing and leading rehabilitation programs for patients with diverse diagnoses. Shortly after, he got admitted to the top three international students to pursue his graduate studies at the University of Padua. Maximiliano’s interests span from the development of neuropsychological assessment tools to researching brain-behavior relationships in emerging fields of new technologies. Maximiliano previously served as a Global Engagement Representative of the SLC and is excited to continue his involvement as Member at Large!
Altay_Yüce_Turan

Altay Yüce Turan

Global Engagement Representative

Altay Yüce Turan is currently enrolled in the Neuropsychology Masters program at The University of Cape Town, South Africa. He holds an Honours degree in Psychology, as well as a Bachelor’s of Social Sciences in Psychology and English Language and Literature. For his honours he undertook a systematic review on heart rate variability and sleep in elite athletes. This work was supervised by Professor Leigh Schrieff, and Gosia Lipinska. This research contributed to the theoretical grounding of whether heart rate variability could be used to index emotion regulation and sleep in athletes at risk of mental health issues, especially those contact sport athletes who have a history of traumatic brain injury. For his masters, Altay intends to conduct neuropsychological research on brain-behaviour relationships to help us better understand enduring abstractions of the human experience, such as our emotions and thoughts. Furthermore, he would like to apply this research to help people live happier, healthier lives.

Amber is now completing her PhD thesis in geriatric TBI, where she is investigating the impact of older age on outcomes following moderate-severe brain injury, including neuropathological (MRI), psychosocial, emotional, and cognitive outcomes in the chronic period post-injury. Amber’s research is supervised by Dr Amelia Hicks, Dr Gershon Spitz, and Professor Jennie Ponsford at the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre (MERRC). Amber holds a student representative position at Monash University, and works at MERRC on additional research projects related to longitudinal outcomes and interventions in TBI.
