Broadly, research in the Neurocognition Laboratory employs a cognitive neuroscientific approach to evaluate alternative theoretical claims surrounding the basic mechanisms of cognition, the relationship among these mechanisms, and the contribution each makes to high-level cognitive function. The lab employs functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in combination with traditional behavioral measures to test hypotheses regarding working memory, decision making, and cognitive control.
The lab's Principal Investigator is Dr. Jason Chein. The lab is located in Weiss Hall on the Temple University campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We conduct regular studies involving human participants and are always seeking to recruit individuals interested in participation. Click on the Participate in Research tab above to learn more.
