Work in our laboratory focuses on four general topics; we study: 1) the neural substrate underlying visual mental imagery (for example, we have used PET and fMRI to show that many of the same structures that are involved in object recognition are also involved in imagery); 2) visual display design (for example, we are interested in designing graphs that immediately convey the sense that displayed differences are significant or non-significant); 3) the neural bases of deception; 4) the neural bases of individual differences in information processing abilities and in "cognitive style."
