Audrey wins William F Jeffers Prize!

Updated: May 6

Big kudos to all-star PennLINC MD/PhD student Audrey Luo, who was selected for the William F. Jeffers Prize. This prize is awarded annually to a Penn PhD student on the basis of a truly outstanding paper relevant to. brain sciences. Her winning entry-- "Functional connectivity development along the sensorimotor-association axis enhances the cortical hierarchy" -- was recently published in Nature Communications. In this phenomenal study, she tested the pre-registered hypothesis that functional connectivity develops according to the hierarchy defined by the sensorimotor-association axis. Remarkably, she delineated highly convergent findings in four independent datasets, emphasizing the importance and generalizability of this major developmental axis.
