02/15/2024: Congrats to Phivos Phylactou, whose Sklodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellowship was selected for funding! Phivos will be joining the lab in 2025 and leveraging simultaneous TMS-EEG to understand the roles of sensory cortical areas in working memory storage.
02/05/2024: More overdue updates!
Ashley successfully defended her thesis and is graduating from UNR with an MA! Congrats Ashley!
Canhuang left the lab (boo!) to start his own lab (yay!) at the University of Shenzhen!

07/02/2023: Ack! Many overdue updates!
Ashley's paper on whether you can "split the beam" and pay attention to mulitple locations stored in WM (upshot: no) was published in AP&P this spring! Check out the publications page for the manuscript and data/code
Papers from Eddie's former FAU grad students Asal Nouri and Paige Pytel were accepted at iScience and NeuroImage, respectively. Check out the publications page for the papers and data/code!
Canhuang presented preliminary findings from a project designed to disentangle the role of sensory vs. mnemonic factors at the 2023 meeting of the Vision Sciences Society.
Rachel finished her BS in Psych from UNR and accepted a position as a post-bac clinical trial coordinator at UNLV. Naturally we're sorry to see her leave the lab, but we know she's on to great things!
