Welcome to the Mack Lab
The Mack Lab is interested in how we learn. We study how attention (our ability to select relevant information from our experiences) interacts with memory (what we know and remember) during learning. Making sense of this interaction will inform not only how learning succeeds, but also why it goes awry and how to put it back on track. We use a combination of behavioral experiments, computational modeling, and functional neuroimaging to explore the learning brain.
