Research in the lab is concerned with understanding human memory and we use a variety of approaches to help constrain theorizing. Our approaches are primarily behavioral experimentation and computational modeling, but also include neuro-imaging (fMRI and ERP) and psycho-pharmacological intervention. We combine approaches as well, e.g., modeling drug experiments, imaging drug experiments. Papers describing work performed in the lab can be found at this website. The lab is affiliated with both the Department of Psychology and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC).
Experience in cognitive psychology and/or cognitive neuroscience is desirable. For Research Programmers, experience in Lisp is a plus.
Research assistants and programmers will be eligible to receive research credit. If interested, please email a resume to redercmu.edu
