Understanding learning, memory and perception through the lens of neuroscience & psychology
How does our brain transform our perceptions into interconnected knowledge?
Our lab works at the intersection of neuroscience and psychology, drawing on learning, memory consolidation, sleep, perception, and computer science.
We use cognitive experiments, brain imaging, and sleep studies, with newly developed computational tools to study human cognition and brain.
A new NeuroImage paper finds that human visual cortex activity is changed after learning the real-world size of a novel animal - see our paper here!
Congratulations to Heather for her new first-author paper "Expertise moderates incidentally learned associations between words and images"!
Marc and Griff present new findings in NeuroImage suggesting that real-world size can be represented in neural activity of human visual cortex
Marc discusses recent developments in analyzing and understanding fMRI data using connectivity and machine learning methods in Trends in Cognitive Sciences
A recent study from the lab examining learning by fast mapping is now in press at Neuropsychologia
Melissa Libertus, Julie Fiez, and Marc have been awarded a research grant from the National Science Foundation to study how the brain connects number symbols and quantities
