Attention, Memory, and Perception Lab
Director: Bradley Gibson
The ability to act in a goal-directed fashion in spite of many competing forces is one of the hallmarks of adaptive human functioning. The AMP Lab examines how basic cognitive mechanisms enable and optimize this adaptive behavior by allowing us to perceive, select, maintain, and retrieve goal-relevant information. We use a variety of different methods, including behavioral, physiological, mathematical modeling, and neuroimaging approaches, to address these questions. We are also interested in examining these questions by considering both individual and group differences, especially between typical and atypical populations.
