Description

This research study aims to look at memory and perception. Our experiments are administered in our testing room at the Department of Neurological Surgery at the Village at Vanderbilt.

In particular, we are interested in the following questions:

  • How do people perceive information?
  • How well can people keep information in their short term memory?

Our studies include either paper and pencil tasks or tasks on computers.

You do not have to know how to use a computer to do these tasks.
