Research Description

Current research concerns the utility of measures of brain activity, derived using non-invasive procedures, in understanding human cognitive function. My current focus is on measures of movement-related brain potentials and their use in evaluating the nature of communication among elements of the human information system. I am also interested in using measures of brain potentials to explore error detection and correction processes and the mechanisms by which responses, once initiated, can be inhibited.

Building Remodeling Projects

Click on the title to check out these pictures from the classroom remodeling project in the basement. A second project to replace the elevators will begin in September. Beginning with the freight elevator, each elevator will be out of service for three months. To get quickly from one floor to another, and improve your fitness, we will encourage the use of the stairs. The repainting of the northeast stairwell has been completed, and the painter is starting on the southwest stairwell.
