Lab: Conditioning and Neuroscience

Research Interests

My primary specialization is information processing in animals. Much of my work has been aimed at differentiating the processes of acquisition, retention, and retrieval of information as causes of test performance deficits. Relatedly, my research interests concern understanding the mechanisms by which processing and behavioral control by a target event are influenced by treatments involving nontarget cues. I am also currently engaged in research examining the effects of metabotropic glutamate receptors on learning. Moreover, I am working on collaborative projects involving research with human subjects on intrinsic or internalized motivation and the reflective processing of values and personal responsibility.
