Research in the Cognitive and Brain Sciences Lab is primarily concerned with understanding the cognitive and neural bases of the representations and processes involved in the production and comprehension of written and spoken words.

To obtain a deeper understanding of these topics, we apply multiple experimental methods: cognitive neuropsychology, psycholinguistics, cognitive neuroscience (fMRI), and computational modeling. We carry out these studies with individuals who have suffered neurological injury, with neurologically intact adults, and with individuals with developmental differences.

Teaching Tibetan Buddhist Monks

Teaching Tibetan Buddhist Monks

As part of The Emory-Tibet Science Initiative, Drs. Brenda Rapp and Jeremy Purcell taught neuroscience to Tibetan Buddhist monks for 10 days in the Gaden Monastery in India, Karnataka State. ETSI is a fascinating program designed to teach modern science to Tibetan monastics. Read more about ETSI here: https://tibet.emory.edu/emory-tibet-science-initiative.
