I am currently a postdoc at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, working with Uri Hasson and Ken Norman, and I will be starting my own research group next summer at Columbia. I study perception and memory for complex, everyday experiences, which I investigate by using naturalistic experiments (such as watching and recalling movies) combined with analysis tools using machine learning. I will be presenting a poster on how our prior knowledge about events shapes neural activity patterns during retrieval on Sunday morning.
My SfN blogging will focus on Themes H: Cognition and I: Techniques, especially for human perception and memory. I hope to talk with presenters about both their specific work and what they predict about the future trends in their subfields.
