Transcranial Direct-Current Stimulation (tDCS)
tdcslab

In the stimulation lab we use transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS). We apply this causal neuroscientific technique to either up-regulate or down-regulate the targeted area of the brain. In this lab, students have the hands-on opportunity to learn real neuroscientific techniques. Students working in this lab present their research at conferences like the annual meeting of the Midwest Psychological Association (MPA) and the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN). Importantly, all psychology students who express a desire to work in the labs are welcome and subsequently have the opportunity to present their research at conferences and potentially co-author peer-reviewed publications.  

Behavioral Lab

We currently specialize in examining visual attention and visual memory. Students who work in this lab present their research at conferences like the annual meeting of the Midwest Psychological Association (MPA) and the annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society. Importantly, all psychology students who express a desire to work in the labs are welcome and subsequently have the opportunity to present their research at conferences and potentially co-author peer-reviewed publications.
