Berry, Cassidy, honored by Association for Psychological Science

Two faculty members with Brandeis connections have been honored by the Association for Psychological Science.

Incoming faculty member Dr. Anne Berry and Dr. Brittany Cassidy, PhD’14, received the association's Rising Star Award, which is given to psychological scientists in the earliest stages of their research careers.

The award celebrates innovative work that already advances the field of psychology and signals great potential for continued contributions.

Berry, who is joining Brandeis from the University of California-Berkeley, researches how neuromodulators like dopamine and acetylcholine impact learning and attention, while Cassidy studies younger and older adults form impressions.
