Research Areas

Our lab takes a problem-centered focus to research questions of the representations and processes that underlie cognition. We combine a wide range of experimental methods – computational modeling, behavioral studies and brain-imaging techniques (e.g., fMRI, ERP/EEGs, tDCS) – and study a variety of populations – unimpaired undergraduate, individuals with developmental differences like congenital deafness or blindness, those with cognitive impairments following brain damage – all with the goal of understanding human capacities for language and memory. Below are several ongoing projects in the lab.
