The work in the Dynamic Memory and Cognition laboratory is organised around human memory and its interactions with other cognitive functions.
Two major themes in the lab are:
- The dynamic search and storage of information for use at a later time.
- The ability to adjust the cognitive system to deal with a changing external environment.
The guiding principle in this work is the premise that thought processes are fundamentally fluid and that the cognitive system as a whole consists of interacting subprocesses. As such, we take an interactive processing approach to cognition instead of the more common systems approach. The research employs mainly experimental and computational methodologies, and collaborative projects also use neuroscientific and clinical methods.
