The mission of the Cognitive Control Lab is to identify and characterize the neural mechanisms of goal directed behavior. To this end, we focus on the frontal lobes, and especially the medial prefrontal cortex. Our research involves a tight integration of computational neural modeling, functional MRI, and cognitive psychology (more).

Ph.D. student openings for Fall 2014
Are you interested in being a Ph.D. student in the lab for Fall of 2014? We receive many inquiries and regrettably may not be able to respond personally to each one. At this point, it is not clear whether the lab will have sufficient funding to accept new Ph.D. students for Fall of 2014. If funding is available, the most competitive applicants will be those with interests and background in cognitive control and goal-directed behavior, functional MRI, computational neuroscience, and a strong quantitative background, in addition to a basic background in psychology and neuroscience.
