During the Neuroergonomics 2016 conference, that took place in Paris from 6 th to 7 th October, Menja Scheer, PhD student in Lewis Chuang’s SFB-TRR 161 project at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, received the Parasuraman Student Award.

This award, that is named after Raja Parasuraman, who’s pioneering work led the emergence of Neuroergonomics as a new scientific field, was lent for the first time. With this prize the community wants to honor excellent results and scientists with a high level of commitment in this research area. Thus, Menja Scheer‘s paper „Attending to the auditory scene improves situational awareness“ got a appreciable attention within the Neuroergonomics community.

Besides the young SFB-TRR 161 academic received a prize money of 300 Euro, handed out by Carryl Baldwin, the widow of Raja Parasuraman.
