Cognition, Brain, & Behavior

Research in the Cognition, Brain, and Behavior (CBB) group includes studies of sensation and perception, learning and memory, attention, mental imagery, conceptual representation, aging, language, emotion, motor control, social cognition, moral decision making, and neurological disorders. The subjects for these studies range from normal human adults and infants to brain-damaged patients, and various non-human primate and avian species. Methodologies include computer-based behavioral tests and web-based surveys to assess functional patterns in behavior, as well as functional neuroimaging techniques (such as magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalography, magnetoencephalography  and transcranial magnetic stimulation) to study the neural bases of various components of cognition and behavior.
