The Cognition & Neurocognitive Disorders Research Laboratory is run by Dr. Joshua Sandry. Their research focuses on fundamental cognitive processes and their role in neurological disorders. We frequently collaborate on projects examining the role of attention in memory and in understanding memory deficits in clinical disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis.
Dr. Evie Vergauwe leads the Working Memory, Cognition, and Development Laboratory at the University of Geneva. They research the relationship between attention and working memory with a particular focus on working memory maintenance mechanisms. Our collaborations are aimed at understanding working memory performance during multitasking situations.
Dr. Hebert is an Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy at the University of South Dakota. She investigates the relationship between emotion and cognition in activities of daily life. Our collaborations primarily focus on the relationship between emotional control and general cognitive mechanisms such as working memory and attention.
The Working-Memory Laboratory is headed by Dr. Nelson Cowan. Researchers in this lab explore capacity limitations in working memory and how these limitations develop through childhood. Our collaborations generally examine the role of time in forgetting from working memory.
