to the Irlen International Professional Advisory Board
The newest addition to Irlen’s International Professional Advisory Board is Associate Professor of Neuroscience, Adam Anderson, PhD from Cornell University. Professor Anderson is the Director of the Affect and Cognition Lab, Cornell’s premier Functional MRI facility on campus, where his research interests are rooted in human emotions, cognition, affective, social, and cognitive neuroscience.
Prof. Anderson will lend his neuroscience expertise as Irlen moves forward in its quest to better understand and document how Irlen Syndrome and Irlen Spectral Filters impact brain function.
Prof. Anderson has served on the editorial boards of Psychological Science, the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Emotion, Cognitive Affective and Behavioral Neuroscience, and is on the founding editorial board of SCAN, Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, a journal dedicated to the new, rapidly growing field of social cognitive neuroscience. He presently serves as Associate editor for the journal Emotion.
In 2009, Prof. Anderson was awarded with the APA Early Career Award for Distinguished Scientific Contributions in cognitive and behavioral neuroscience. In 2010, he received the Young Investigator Award by the Cognitive Neuroscience Society.
Professor Anderson received his B.A. in cognitive science from Vassar College, a PhD in cognitive psychology from Yale University, and post-doctoral training in cognitive and affective neuroscience at Stanford University. Before coming to Cornell University to continue his groundbreaking work in the area of human neuroscience, Professor Anderson was at the University of Toronto for 10 years.
