Research Interests/Areas: Leo received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Cognition & Perception Psychology, with a specialization in Cognitive Neuroscience. He joined Hopkins as a postdoc and then staff Research Scientist in the Courtney and Yantis laboratories. He has conducted research on working memory, attention, and perception in healthy young adults, and in multiple sclerosis and aging populations, using behavioral and neuroimaging methods. Leo is now a faculty Research Scientist in Psychological & Brain Sciences.
Research Interests/Areas: Cognitive control; Cognitive aging; Arithmetic processing; Functional neuromaging (EEG, MEG, fMRI).

Research Interests/Areas: Before joining the Courtney Lab, Tara studied at the University of California, Berkeley, where she received her B.A. in Cognitive Science. She also spent time as a student researcher at the University of Cambridge. Her past behavioral research explored the relationship between viewing physical gesture and memory of episodic events. Her current research is motivated by a desire to understand cognitive changes that occur over time in the adult and aging brain. She believes that the well-honed methods and modern technologies of Cognitive Neuroscience provide a promising approach for further understanding, and hopefully aiding, the aging population at large. As a non-traditional student, Tara appreciates the importance of advice, mentorship, and community for those on an academic path. She welcomes and encourages contact from students and learners of all backgrounds.

Research Interests/Areas: Kara received her PhD from Temple University, where she studied how expertise influences visual perception, attention, and memory with a focus on determining methods to improve various facets of visual cognition through training. In the Courtney lab, Kara focused on the neural bases of working memory for different types of visuospatial information. Kara explored how working memory training changes the brain and potentially improves a range of cognitive abilities.
Research Interests/Areas: Chase received his PhD in Neuroscience from Queen’s University, where he studied fMRI contrast mechanisms and developed new methods for motion-compensated and event-related spinal cord fMRI. His primary research involves the application of fMRI and other advanced MRI methods to probe the structural, functional and cognitive changes that occur with the progression of Multiple Sclerosis. Although his primary appointment is here in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, he is also co-supervised by Professor Peter van Zijl at the FM Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging.
Research Interests/Areas: Madeline's research interests include food addiction, eating disorders, reward behavior, neuromuscular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and cognitive developmental disorders.
Research Interests/Areas: Graduated with a B.S. in Physics and Vocal Performance at Dickinson College in 2009.
Research Interests/Areas: Akiko received her Ph.D. from New York University, investigating the representation of maps of space in the prefrontal and parietal cortices during spatial attention guidance. In the Courtney lab, Akiko’s projects include the use of multiple methodologies in order to understand dynamic relationships between brain regions underlying working memory and attention control.
Research Interests/Areas: Moral development: moral judgments, moral reasoning, morally-relevant theory of mind (MoToM), intergroup dynamics. Language production: polysemy, lexical and conceptual representations, spreading activation, development, syntax, pragmatics. Philosophy of mind: intentionality, semiotics, meaning-making, complex systems, situated cognition, consciousness.

Research Interests/Areas: Caroline Montojo received her Ph.D from Johns Hopkins University in 2012. During her time as a graduate student, she pursued two lines of research in the lab. One line focused on the neural mechanisms involved in shifting selection among information represented perceptually and in working memory. Another line of research focused on the effects of repeated performance of working memory tasks on patterns of brain activation in Multiple Sclerosis patients. Both behavioral and neuroimaging techniques were used in her research.

Research Interests/Areas: Research interest is in using univariate/multivariate network analyses and state-of-the-art neuroimaging methodologies to study the neural mechanisms and cortical architecture of higher cognitive processing, such as working memory, cognitive control, and attention. Further, she is also interested in exploring how neural disruptions caused by disease, such as ADHD, can modify the trajectory of cognitive development and change the functional coupling between cortical regions and give rise to a number of cognitive deficits. Through the study of disruptions in neural circuitry, we can gain a better understanding of how cortical regions normally interact when performing higher cognitive functions.

Research Interests/Areas: I use behavioral, psycho-physical, electrophysiological, and neural-imaging methods in conjunction with eye tracking to address questions about the neural basis of voluntary control of inhibitory behavior in humans and nonhuman primates. Things I do outside of lab: Rock climbing, backpacking, sea kayaking, cycling, scuba diving, and sailing. Traveling is a given.
