The Science of Learning Institute includes a broad network of scientists, practitioners, and educators with expertise spanning basic and applied sciences.
I am a surgeon with formal training in education. Part of my research focuses on training surgeons to competence. As a surgical educator I will formulate how feedback is delivered through the virtual coach.
I am interested in reading comprehension and writing strategies, and students with learning disabilities.
My research combines large-scale data optimization, estimation, dynamics systems and control with neurophysiology. My lab has extensive research in analysis and modeling of neurophysiological signals with a focus on motor control, neurological disorders and deep brain stimulation therapy.
My research examines the behavioral, neural, and physiological correlates of emotion dysregulation in children and adolescents with various forms of psychopathology, especially attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
I am interested in human movement control. I integrate the viewpoints from robotics and control theory with neuroscience to provide a unique perspective on the biological computations that underlie the control of movements.
I am interested in spatial skills, individual differences, and mechanisms of learning, couched in the broad context of understanding the characterization and needs of the individual learner.
I am interested in the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for pediatric patients. My current research focuses on the adaptation and evaluation of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) for urban youth.
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 understanding novel mechanisms regulating structural and functional plasticity in the mature mammalian central nervous system.
I am interested in the neurochemical and metabolic effects of bariatric surgery and operative techniques in laparoscopic surgery.
