Lab Director

Ramesh Srinivasan
Professor, Department of Cognitive Sciences
Ph.D., Tulane University, Biomedical Engineering
B.S., University of Pennsylvania, Electrical Engineering

Research Interests: Cognitive Neuroscience, Brain Development,
Consciousness, Perception, EEG, Brain Dynamics

Post Doctoral Researchers

Michael D. Nunez
Associate Specialist, Department of Biomedical Engineering
Ph.D., Cognitive Neuroscience (Psychology), University of California, Irvine, 2017
M.S., Statistics, University of California, Irvine, 2015
B.S., Mathematics and Economics, Tulane University, 2010


Research Interests: My focus is mathematical cognitive neuroscience. I am currently testing the veracity of combined electrocortical and cognitive models of human decision making. This is typically performed in a Bayesian statistical framework with hierarchical models of EEG measures and human behavior.
