Graduate Students

Millie profile

Millie Copara – I am a graduate student in the Neuroscience program interested in episodic memory retrieval and the brain regions involved in representing these memories. Find out more about my research here.

 

 

 
Jared profileJared Stokes – I am a graduate student in the Psychology program. 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.). Find out more about my research here.

 
Branden profileBranden Kolarik – I am a graduate student in the Psychology program. I am interested in how humans represent spatial context, whether it be in service of navigating through space toward a goal or distinguishing between two events in memory. Find out more about my research here.

 

 

 
Amber profileAmber Schedlbauer – I am a graduate student in the Neuroscience program. My main research interests involve using function magnetic resonance imaging and electrocorticography to characterize large-scale networks present during episodic memory processes. Find out more about my research here.

 

 
Michael Starrett – I am a graduate student in the Psychology program. I am interested in the cognitive and neural bases of spatial representations for large-scale environments. My research combines innovative and immersive virtual reality (VR) technology with both behavioral and neurophysiological measures. Find out more about my research here.
