Research Summary

Dr. Lewis-Peacock's research focuses on understanding how the processes of working memory and long-term memory interact with one another in the human brain, and how people dynamically deploy these resources in the service of pursuing their goals. His lab uses a combination of behavioral methods, functional neuroimaging, and computational approaches to address these questions. For example, this research melds brain imaging with machine learning techniques to peek under the hood and test psychological theories in powerful new ways. By analyzing distributed spatial and temporal patterns of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data, it is possible read out moment-to-moment information trajectories in the brain and identify what a person is seeing, retrieving from memory, holding in mind, and even forgetting. The lab is currently working to expand this approach to incorporate real-time neurofeedback -- that is, providing information about a participant's brain activity while they are performing a task in the MRI scanner.
