Professor, Department of Psychology and Evelyn McKnight Brain Institute
I am currently a postdoc in the lab. My research aims to understand the cognitive mechanisms of spatial representations in humans.
I am a postdoc fellow in the lab and now I am interested in the temporal interval representation during human episodic memory and navigation using high-resolution fMRI.
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.
My research interests in human spatial cognition are highly interdisciplinary and span across cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and human-computer interaction. Specifically, my research explores: 1) using theories from animal neuroscience to predict human navigation behavior, 2) the usability of commodity virtual reality systems, and 3) individual differences in spatial cognition and navigation.
I received my Ph.D. in May 2021 from the University of Arizona. I am currently finishing up projects from my doctoral work in the HSC lab before starting a postdoc at UC Irvine with Dr. Liz Chrastil in July 2021.
I am a Ph.D. candidate in Psychology at University of Arizona. I am fascinated by neural oscillations!
I am a first-year graduate student. My research interests include understanding the cognitive processes involved in spatial navigation using EEG and virtual reality.
I am a PhD student who is interested in asymmetries between the perception of spatial and temporal dimensions, episodic memory and spatial navigation. My techniques include EEG, TMS, fMRI, and virtual reality.
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.
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 currently a research specialist working at the lab. I am interested in learning about the cognitive mechanisms of spatial representations in humans in virtual environments.
I am currently a research specialist working in this lab and the Human Memory Lab at the University of Arizona. I am broadly interested in consolidation theory and memory impairments, designing tasks that examine (re)consolidation differences in healthy adults and individuals with memory impairment.
