The Laboratory of Brain Science and Cognition uses neuroimaging and behavioral measures to explore cognitive processes such as memory and cognitive control. The work in the laboratory aims to 1) use neurobiological measures derived from electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to understand memory and cognitive control interactions, 2) identify how different neuropsychological disorders impact memory and cognitive control, and 3) use cognitive training techniques known to impact EEG and fMRI measures to improve cognitive function.  In particular, the laboratory is interested in how brain oscillations support memory and cognitive control, how neurological disorders such as mild traumatic brain injury (concussions) and Parkinson's disease change oscillations, and to use mindfullness based training techniques that change brain oscillations to combat cognitive changes in neurological disorders.
