PhD Students

Adams
Kirsten Adam
Kirsten is interested in the relationship between visual attention and working memory, with a focus on how failures of attention adversely impact working memory performance. She uses EEG and individual differences approaches to investigate the potential mechanisms that underlie our cognitive limits.Personal website
suttererprofile David Sutterer
David is interested in long term memory, working memory, and interactions between the two systems.  His research involves using encoding models to examine the role of oscillatory activity in long term memory retrieval and working memory. He is also studying the relationship between the probability that memories can be retrieved and the precision with which those memories can be retrieved.CV
JoshuaFoster Joshua Foster
Josh is using EEG in conjunction with encoding models to examine online spatial representations in working memory and to track the dynamics of covert spatial attention.CV

Nicole is broadly interested in individual differences in visual attention, perception and working memory. She is using EEG and behavioral methods to explore the relationship between attention and working memory.Personal Page CV
Quirk Colin Quirk
Colin is interested in using EEG technology to study basic cognitive systems (e.g. attention, working memory & long-term memory). Currently he is using EEG to explore the mechanisms of implicit learning.Personal website
