PhD student Latané Bullock is awarded NIH training grant

Latané, a 3rd-year Ph.D. student, applied for a National Institute of Health (NIH) F31 training grant last fall. As of today, he has officially been awarded the grant from the National Institute of Deafness and Communication Disorders titled “Leveraging human intracranial recordings to quantitatively characterize basal ganglia output during speech.” Congrats, Latané! The training grant allows Latané to work with Dr. Frank Guenther at Boston University to help create a computational model of speech production during his PhD, in addition to his empirical research projects in the Brain Modulation Lab. The grant will also fund a 10-day trip to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for Latané to shadow our collaborator Dr. Robert Turner in his studies of neurons in non-human primate basal ganglia. More generally, financial support from the NIH is a promising step in Latané’s career; he hopes to become an independent researcher in speech neurosciences.
