List of members of the molecules to mind working group
I am interested in the human capacity for identifying, categorizing, evaluating, and interacting with objects. I aim to understand the neural algorithms that make object vision possible.
I am interested in how infants and children perceive, learn and reason about the world around them. Specific domains include numerical cognition, object-based attention, and short-term memory in infants and young children.
I am interested in visual learning and how visual information is used by, and sometimes limits thoughts and behaviors.
I am interested in the neural systems that serve a role in learning, memory and attention.
I am interested in mechanisms of behavior. My research focus is the study of brain systems for appetitive conditioning in rats.
The goal of my laboratory is to understand how neural circuits learn to produce responses to environmental cues that increase the fitness of the animal, and how disruption of this process contributes to cognitive disease.
I am interested in the behavioral and cognitive correlates of the hippocampal formation--a brain region that is critical for forming and storing long-term memories.
I am interested in cognitive deficits in children and adults with brain damage or learning disabilities, including deficits in visual perception, reading, spelling, and memory.
My research attempts to identify the proper roles within a unified theory of cognition for symbolic computation, numerical neural computation, and statistical computation.
I am interested in the neurophysiological mechanisms that underlie decision-making and self-control, two essential functions of higher executive processes.
