#Introduction I'm a prof in cognitive neuroscience at University College London. My research group studies spatial cognition in range of areas and methods from single-unit recordings in rodents to self-reports in humans.
Here's a painting of my brain from 20 years ago. I still do a lot of fMRI
#introduction Alright let’s try a toot! I’m an Assistant Prof in the U Penn psych department. Our lab studies how the human brain learns and remembers. Our focus is on the role of the hippocampus in acquiring structured knowledge from the environment, and on how we then transform this information with time and sleep. (More here: schapirolab.org.)
I’m part of the bird migration, hoping we can rebuild our wonderful science community here.
I study the human brain and behavior. I love thinking about memory and perception and sharing papers on these topics.
I am also passionate about making academia a better place. The two most important things I have written:
My story of mental illness and the importance of mental health support: https://storiesinscience.org/2019/06/12/studying-and-experiencing-mental-illness/
My article on how faculty can make labs more supportive for their students: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-06167-w
