Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

I am interested in the neurobiological mechanisms of learning and memory in older adults.

Dr. Gregory Hager

Mandell Bellmore Professor of Computer Science; Founding Director of the Malone Institute for Engineering in Healthcare
Whiting School of Engineering

My research spans applications of computing to medicine with an emphasis on imaging and robotics, and their use to augment human capabilities in medicine. In the last 12 years, I have developed and led several projects related to computer-enhanced surgery.

Dr. Justin Halberda

Associate Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

I am interested in language acquisition and the possibility that logical deductive inference my play a role in the learning of new words. I also study the organization of attention, working memory, and the connection of mind to world.

Dr. Mariale Hardiman

I am interested in mechanisms of behavior. My research focus is the study of brain systems for appetitive conditioning in rats.

Dr. Steven Holochwost

Research Scientist

I am interested in the effects of environment, and particularly poverty and parenting, on voluntary forms of self-regulation (e.g., executive functions) and the involuntary activity of neurophysiological systems that support self-regulatory abilities.

Dr. Richard Huganir

Professor and Director, Department of Neuroscience; Co-Director, Brain Science Institute
School of Medicine

I am interested in the regulation of neurotransmitter receptors and brain function in health and disease.
