Brain & Cognitive Sciences Home

Our lab group studies the origins and organization of conceptual knowledge. We use a diverse set of methods to explore the cognitive and neural basis of conceptual domains such as numbers, symbols, tools, faces, and everyday objects. Our methods include cognitive and neuroimaging (fMRI) studies of adults, children, and non-human primates, as well as neuropsychological tests of individuals with brain damage. Our goal is to understand the nature and origins of concepts.
