Description

The proposed Program Project in Cognitive Neuroscience has as its aim the
multi-disciplinary study of human perception, cognition, and motor
function. It is our belief that while it is important to establish
relationships between mental functions and particular brain structures, it
is equally important to understand how such localilzable functions interact
in the control of behavior. To this end, a range of mental functions
including language, attention, auditory pattern recognition, memory, and
motor control will be studied in normal and special neurological
populations. Studies in these areas have been designed to examine specific
psychololgical functions as well as the roles these specific functions play
in more general behavior. Our structual approach, on the other hand,
includes metabolic analysis with Positron Emission Tomography (PET),
structural analysis with Computerized Tompgraphy (CT), and
electrophysiological analysis with Event Related Potentials (ERP). These
activities are all presently being pursued.
