Research Interests

The Cognition Lab is concerned with scientific studies of human memory. Our goal is to understand how people store and retrieve information about the past, and how they sometimes misinterpret that information. Current models of the interdisciplinary field of cognitive neuroscience suggest that so-called "false memories" are not really false, but reflect confusion about the source of information in memory. Research in the Cognition Lab tests those models experimentally.
