My research interests are in the cognitive and neural processes that
support human memory, and how age-related changes in these processes
underlie the changes in memory function that occur as we age. A major
focus of my research is episodic memory – memory for unique events.
Separate research programs investigate episodic encoding, episodic
retrieval, and age-related differences in neural correlates of both of
these functions. A theme running through all of the research is the
employment of three distinct methodologies: the behavioral methods of
experimental psychology, human electrophysiology (event-related
potentials), and functional magnetic resonance imaging.
An important note from the VTSFN Chapter president:
appreciate that times are tight, and we strive to keep the NBH
Forum registration fee and the Vermont Chapter SFN dues as low as
possible. These fees are used primarily to offset costs of
the NBH Forum, but some are also used to support the Vermont Brain
Bee, an important mechanism for outreach to high school students.
We do not make a profit and set fees so that we can break even
each year . The NBH Forum has been running at a deficit, and
consequently we had to increase the Vermont SFN Chapter dues by $5
for faculty members. We do so reluctantly, but this small
increase is necessary. Thank you for understanding and for your
Last year we had over 200 participants!
We look forward to seeing you again this year!
Abstracts are limited to 250 words and should be submitted by January 6.
