Our lab develops computational and formal models of the biological bases of cognition (computational cognitive neuroscience), focusing on specialization of function in and interactions between hippocampus, prefrontal cortex/basal ganglia, and posterior neocortex in learning, memory, attention, vision, and controlled processing. We test predictions from these models using a range of behavioral and other experimental techniques. Current models integrate multiple brain areas in embodied virtual agents to study learning in realistic physical environments.
- Postdoc Position Available fall 2014 -- We are hiring a new postdoc to start in the fall semester. This position will focus on computational models of neural vision. Please send an email if interested.
