This is one of two annual awards  ($2500 each) given  each year to   ‘promising students”  involved in innovative doctoral research pertinent to neuropsychology.  Originally established in 2001, this APF award honors the memory of two early leaders in the field of neuropsychology: Arthur Benton and Manfried Meier. To date, Jacob’s research has focused on cognitive and emotional sequelae of Parkinson’s disease.  He has been working under the mentorship of Dr. Dawn Bowers in the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory and in collaboration with faculty of UF’s Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration.
