Cognitive consequences on neuroplasticity

My research focuses primarily on memory throughout the human brain, particularly the cognitive neuroscience of implicit memory and skill learning.  In my laboratory, we study memory phenomena with traditional experimental psychology methods, applied methods in the field, functional neuroimaging and neuropsychological studies of patients with learning or memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. 
Increasingly, our research has aimed to translate results in the basic science of learning and memory to practical applications outside the laboratory.  The cognitive neuroscience of implicit learning is being used to guide improvements in training procedures aimed at the rapid development of skilled performance (map understanding) and intuition (two projects funded by the Office of Naval Research).
