Jared profileThe brain represents prior knowledge, and the structure of these representations influence how we interact with new information. Currently, I’m interested in better understanding the neural patterns associated with the organization of complex, conceptual knowledge and how this organization is influenced by hippocampal-dependent cognitive processes (e.g., rich contextual memory, relational processing, etc.). Through integrating innovated virtual reality tasks with fMRI analytical techniques, I hope to broaden our understanding of human learning and memory.
