Welcome to the website for the Memory and Brain Laboratory at the University of Nevada!
Have you ever found yourself staring blankly, forgetting what it was that you were doing? Or, searching for the keys you just put in your pocket? These common events mark failures in 'working memory', the ability to hold onto a few bits of information as we use it. Our Lab works to understand what kinds of information gets into working memory, how information falls out of working memory, whether working memory can be improved after brain injury such as concussion, or by training. We would like to find ways to help people maintain working memory function over the lifespan.
The MB Lab applies various approaches, including behavior, eye tracking, neuropsychology, neurostimulation (tDCS, HD-tDCS, tACS, TMS), high-density EEG, functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), and neuroimaging (fMRI).
