Understanding learning, memory and perception through the lens of neuroscience & psychology
How does our brain transform 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 and neuroimaging, with newly developed computational tools, to understand cognition and the human brain.
Caroline has a new first-author paper that is now In Press in Cognition, titled "Numerical Estrangement and Integration between Symbolic and Non-symbolic Numerical Information: Task-Dependence and Its Link to Math Abilities in Adults". Congratulations, Caroline!
Congratulations to Caroline for her first-authored paper now In press at Psychonomic Bulletin & Review! It's titled "Sleep reduces the semantic coherence of memory recall: An application of latent semantic analysis to investigate memory reconstruction", and is also available as a preprint.
Griff has a new first-author paper now In press at Learning & Memory, titled "Image memorability is predicted by discriminability and similarity in different stages of a convolutional neural network". Congratulations to Griff and second author Essang for this achievement!
The lab is delighted to have received an award from the National Science Foundation. The funded research will examine how our brain represents different granularities of concepts (such as animal, mammal, dog, Labrador, Fido) using fMRI.
The lab took a trip to the Black Cat Market, a local cat cafe, as a social event during the Spring 2022 Semester!
