Working Group: Individualized Learning

List of members of the individualized learning working group

Dr. John Desmond

Professor, Departments of Neurology and Cognitive Science
School of Medicine

I am interested in the neural substrates of learning and behavior using neuroimaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and transcranial direct current stimulation.

Dr. David Foster

Associate Professor, Department of Neuroscience
School of Medicine

I am interested in the neural underpinnings of learning. Specifically, how large populations of neurons encode and process information to support learning and behavior in awake, behaving animals.

Dr. Michela Gallagher

Krieger-Eisenhower Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, School of Medicine

I am interested in the neural systems that serve a role in learning, memory and attention.

Dr. Gary Goldstein

President/CEO, Kennedy Kreiger Institute; Professor, Depts. of Neurology & Pediatrics and Environmental Health Sciences
Bloomberg School of Public Health, Kennedy Krieger Institute, School of Medicine

My research focused on the role of brain capillaries in the formation of the blood brain barrier and the mechanisms of capillary injury in toxic brain disorders.

Susan Magsamen

Senior Advisor on Community Partnerships

Dr. Michael McCloskey

Professor, Department of Cognitive Science; Director of Undergraduate Studies
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

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.

Dr. Brenda Rapp

Professor, Department of Cognitive Science
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

I am interested in the cognitive processes and neural substrates that support written and spoken word production and comprehension.

Dr. Hongjun Song

Director, Stem Cell Program at the Institute for Cell Engineering; Professor, Department of Neurology
School of Medicine

I am interested in understanding novel mechanisms regulating structural and functional plasticity in the mature mammalian central nervous system.

Dr. David Valle

Henry J. Knott Professor and Director of the Institute of Genetic Medicine; Professor, Departments of Pediatrics, Ophthalmology and Molecular Biology & Genetics
School of Medicine

I am interested in understanding all aspects of the contribution of genetic variation to human health and disease.

Dr. Colin Wilson

Associate Professor, Department of Cognitive Science
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

I am interested in theoretical and experimental phonology as well as computational cognitive science.
