Doctoral student, Bonnie Scott, receives the 2018 Walter G. McMillen Memorial Award for Parkinson Disease Research from APA Division 20
This $1000 research award was based on Bonnie’s doctoral dissertation, which focuses on cortical and subcortical electrophysiological markers of apathy and impulse control disorders in Parkinson disease, both before and during DBS surgery. Bonnie is a TL-1 trainee and an associate trainee on an NINDS-T32 for interdisciplinary training in movement disorders. She is a 4th year neuropsychology student in Dr. Bowers’ laboratory. Depending on study results, findings may have implications for identification and treatment of motivational disorders in Parkinson disease.
