What do we pay attention to?

How and why do we hold information 'in mind'?

How are memories formed and retrieved?

Why do we forget some memories?

We study these questions, and more on the human mind and brain, using behavioral tasks, eye tracking, electroencephalogram (EEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

We need volunteers to participate in online studies. Please get in touch with us if you are interested in participating!

Online çalışmalarımıza katılacak gönüllüler arıyoruz. Katılmak isterseniz lütfen bizimle iletişime geçin.
