Research in Neuroimaging Group (RiNG)
Can investigations of the human brain inform our understanding of the human mind?
Research in the Psychology Department’s Research Neuroimaging Group combines psychological and neuroscientific approaches to evaluate alternative theories regarding the basic mechanisms of perception and cognition, the relationship among these mechanisms, and the contribution each makes to complex human behavior. The labs in this research group employ functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in combination with traditional behavioral, developmental, and neuropsychological approaches to test hypotheses regarding learning and memory, perception, decision making, and executive function.
