What We Do:

​Work in the laboratory examines hemispheric contributions to performance on cognitive, affective, and perceptual tasks.  Cognitive processes of particular interest include language-based episodic and semantic memory, spatial memory, local versus global processing, attention, and factors related to decision making and ease of persuasion.  Affects of interest include anger and anxiety in particular, and their effects on cognition.  Perceptual changes examined involve hemi-spatial biases.  Methodologies used include manipulations of hemispheric activity using various techniques, examinations of individual differences in handedness effects, and sleep.
