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

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

Co-Chair (2022-2024)
Josh Fox-Fuller is a doctoral candidate in the Clinical Psychology Program at Boston University under the co-mentorship of Dr. Alice Cronin-Golomb and Dr. Yakeel T. Quiroz (Massachusetts General Hospital). 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!

Annual Meeting Program Representative
Stacey Brothers is a second-year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology) program at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her advisor is Dr. Yana Suchy. She completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Kentucky in 2017. Following graduation, she worked at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging in Lexington, KY. She was primarily involved with the Down Syndrome and Aging study, which longitudinally tracked cognition and neurological changes in individuals with Down Syndrome and their relation to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. She is currently completing her master’s thesis on the effects of pain, sleep, and expressive suppression on executive functioning and performance of instrumental activities of daily living. She is interested in identifying factors relevant to the assessment of executive functioning, as well as work with forensic populations.

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_Photo 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!
Claudia_Pulcini_Photo Claudia Pulcini
Global Engagement Representative
Claudia Pulcini is a PhD candidate in Cognitive Neuropsychology at the University of Goldsmiths, London. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2017 at the University of Padua, Italy, followed by a Masters degree in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University La Sapienza in Rome, completed in 2019. Her masters thesis investigated the role of the dopaminergic system in interpersonal coordination in patients with Parkinson's disease. Claudia then worked one year as a Research Assistant at Goldsmiths University under the supervision of her current PhD supervisor, Dr. Ashok Jansari, a leading Cognitive Neuropsychologist in the UK. Her research focuses on the different facets of Face Recognition, from Prosopagnosia to Super Recognition. She's interested in both developmental and acquired Prosopagnosia and her research involves both group and single case studies. She's part of a broad and flourishing research group, ART (Ashok's Research Team), and her involvement in the field of Neuropsychology extends also to Memory and Executive Functions. Claudia is thrilled to start working as an SLC Global Engagement Representative and to play an active role in the International Neuropsychological Society!
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.
