LSU Multidisciplinary Institute for Neuroscience Discovery will host scientists who have made substantial contributions to the field of neuroscience to speak about their work on LSU’s campus. Each speaker will give a presentation followed by a discussion panel with LSU faculty members.
Edward Awh is a professor in the Department of Psychology, The Institute for Mind and Biology, and the Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior at the University of Chicago. His laboratory focuses on behavioral and neural studies of memory and attention. Dr. Awh’s lab employs psychophysics, EEG, and functional MRI to learn about the neural mechanisms underlying these basic cognitive processes and the relationship between these processes and other cognitive functions. Recent work has focused on the use of neural decoding techniques to track the contents of online memories and the locus of covert attention.
