The Laboratory of Brain Sciences and Cognition is part of the Psychology Department and is affiliated with the Neuroscience and Behavior major at the University of New Hampshire.  The research in Dr. Ross’ Lab explores cognitive neuroscience with a particular focus on cognitive control, learning and memory.  The Lab uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) as well as genetic profiling to explore individual differences in how people learn, store, and retrieve memories.  The Lab is particularly interested in determining the neural correlates of how we keep the details of similar memories separate from each other.  Additionally, Professor Ross is working to find a way to predict the types of cognitive change an individual with Parkinson’s Disease will experience.
