The broad focus of my research is episodic memory, with a specific focus on how memory and related processes change with normal aging and neurological disorders. I use a combination of behavioral, neuroimaging, and neuromodulatory approaches to address these questions.
I am currently a research specialist working for the lab at the University of Arizona. I am interested in path integration & cognitive mapping in virtual reality environments, and I currently utilize Unity & C# scripting to create those environments.
I am a second-year Neuroscience PhD student in the HSC Lab. I am interested in using intracranial EEG to study how neural activity arising from sensory representations and movement interact with subcortical brain structures to support episodic memory and spatial navigation.
Sameer Sabharwal-Siddiqi is a PhD student at the lab. Past research interests span attention, decision-making, emotional attribution, and the role of self-awareness in memory. At the Human Spatial Cognition laboratory, he is invested in directing these interests towards the topic of navigation. He is especially interested in the possibility of combining brain-imaging and VR-based navigation to reveal neural-correlates of spatiotemporal experience.
