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.
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 the molecular basis of memory storage in the brain.
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.
I am interested in the neural mechanisms that underlie the reward-dependent learning.
My research attempts to identify the proper roles within a unified theory of cognition for symbolic computation, numerical neural computation, and statistical computation.
