Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience

Research happening in Dr. Ravizza's lab


Our Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) research faculty investigate a wide range of topics including attention, perception, executive processes, language, memory, categorization, and skill acquisition. We use a wide range of methods and theoretical approaches in our research ranging from functional neuroimaging to behavioral methods to quantitative, mathematical, and computational modeling.

Topics of research interests that make our program distinct include:  

  • visual attention
  • attention allocation
  • task switching
  • working memory
  • cognitive control
  • retinal input and conscious visual perception
  • selective attention
  • error monitoring
  • emotion processing and regulation
  • role of sleep in memory consolidation
  • expertise
  • rhythm and temporal processing
  • role of prosody in word segmentation and lexical access
  • music cognition
  • auditory perception
