We have now named the winner of the Tom Budzynski Legacy Award, co-sponsored by MindPlace, for clinical research in application of neurofeedback in elderly for prevention of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) progression to dementia/Alzheimer disease. It has been 10 years since Tom passed away and we wanted to commemorate his legacy. It is a one time award.
The award ($500) goes to:
Dr Fabienne Marlats, Neuropsychologist, Department of Clinical Gerontology, Broca Hôspital, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), Research TEAM EA4468, Paris Descartes University, Paris, France
