Cognitive Neuroscience

The Cognitive Neuroscience group is led by O'Dhaniel Mullette-Gillman. The group works on understanding higher brain function, cognitive and intelligent behavior of humans.

The core focus is centered on decision making: how under complex environment brains of living systems make decisions. Theory of decision making, such as managing or balancing error rates, identifying the cost of making such decisions (or errors) and how time or more data can benefit making better decisions. Cognitive science experimentation as well as mathematical analysis and computational modeling is carried out. Major tools/technologies include multi-function brain imaging, employing electrical, optical and functional brain imaging.
