Lab

Seger Cognitive Neuroimaging Lab: Our lab uses functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), cognitive testing, and anatomical imaging to investigate a variety of topics in the cognitive neuroscience of human learning and cognition. Our core research examines how interactions between basal ganglia and cortex in corticostriatal "loops" contribute to category learning. We also collaborate on a variety of projects in areas as diverse as risk taking in adolescence, recognition memory, musical harmony and rhythm processing, and neuroeconomics.
