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 recent post in the Psychonomics Society highlights some of the lab's findings on the nature of words and their associations.
Congratulations to Griff for his new first-author paper in Cerebral Cortex!
Marc, Griff, Essang and John shared their work at the 2019 Society for Neuroscience in Chicago:
Congratulations to Brandon for his first first-author paper now In Press at NeuroImage - "Word inversion sensitivity as a marker of visual word form area lateralization: An application of a novel multivariate measure of laterality"
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
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
