Laboratory for Cognitive Neurodynamics

Laboratory of Cognitive Neurodynamics

The Laboratory of Cognitive Neurodynamics, under the direction of Avniel Ghuman, PhD, studies how our brain turns what falls upon our eyes into the rich meaningful experience that we perceive in the world around us. Specifically, the goal of these studies is to examine the spatiotemporal dynamics of how neural activity reflects the stages of information processing and how information flow through brain networks responsible for visual perception. The lab is particularly interested in the dynamic neural representation of faces, bodies, objects, words, and social and affective visual images. In the past year, Dr. Ghuman was awarded the Biobehavioral Research Award for Innovative New Scientists from the National Institute of Mental Health to support this work.
