The Science of Learning Institute includes a broad network of scientists, practitioners, and educators with expertise spanning basic and applied sciences.
I am interested in the neurobiological mechanisms of learning and memory in older adults.
I am interested in computer vision and robotics in an effort to discover the underlying structures in surgical motion.
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.
I am interested in enhancing educational practices through techniques that foster innovation and creative problem-solving for all students.
I am interested in the role of melanopsin cells in regulating mammalian physiology.
I am interested in how language and other cognitive functions recover after stroke. My work specifically examines treatments for disorders such as aphasia and hemispatial neglect
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 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.
I am interested in the regulation of neurotransmitter receptors and brain function in health and disease.
