The Cognition & Neurocognitive Disorders Research Lab focuses on investigating basic and applied questions related to cognition in both healthy and clinical populations. Our approach is to integrate and apply the conceptually rich perspectives of cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, neurobiology and computational mathematical modeling to further our understanding of cognitive dysfunction that results from neurologic conditions, including multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury. Understanding disrupted cognitive and neural mechanisms associated with cognitive impairment will potentially lead to new interventions that substantially improve the quality of life of individuals living with these conditions.
We strongly value diversity and are committed to fostering an inclusive research environment for lab members and participants.
Current research in the lab is funded by National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS RG-1907-34364 & RG-1901-33304), the NJ Department of Health - Commission on Brain Injury Research (CBIR201RG027 & CBIR23IRG021) & National Institutes of Health, NINDS (R01NS121107-01).
