The NeuroCognitive Translation Lab applies expertise from behavioral, brain imaging (e.g., fMRI, DTI, fNIRS), and computational (e.g., machine learning, network analysis, pattern analyses) techniques to answer two research questions: (1) What can our neural and psychological signatures tell us about our mental abilities, and (2) How can we better measure and interpret these signatures for predicting human health outcomes?

The lab is housed in the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which has a state-of-the-art Brain Imaging Center and a 3T MRI scanner dedicated for research. Beyond having access to the scanner, the postdoctoral researcher will also have access to EEG/ERP, virtual reality, mobile psychophysiology, eye-tracking (many of which can be measured both in and out of the MRI scanner), as well as several other cutting-edge techniques
