    We are welcoming two new members into our lab: Cheol Soh hails from Seoul, South Korea, and is a graduate student in the Dept of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Nathan Chalkley is a former UI undergraduate, who joins our lab as a lab manager. Welcome Cheol & Nathan!

  • New paper in JEP:HPP

    May 30, 2017 - 5:45pm

    Our new paper, now available online, shows that unexpected perceptual events (in this case, surprising tones) can aid motor inhibition - i.e., the ability to stop an action: http://psycnet.apa.org/psycinfo/2017-23360-001/

  • Lab receives two grants from INI/Carver Trust

    April 27, 2017 - 2:00pm

    The lab has received two grants through the newly conceived Iowa Neuroscience Institute, funded by the Roy J. Carver charitable trust.

    The first grant, a Junior Research Program of Excellence grant, will fund the lab with $300,000 over 2 years.

    The second grant, a Research Program of Excellence grant, is a collaborative grant between our lab and the labs of Kumar Narayanan (UIHC Neurology), Krystal Parker (UIHC Psychiatry), Aaron Boes (UIHC Psychiatry), Jeremy Greenlee (UIHC Neurosurgery), and Soura Dasgupta (UI College of Engineering), and will pay them team $750,000 over 5 years. The team is coordinated by Dr. Narayanan.

  • New paper in Psychophysiology

    April 8, 2017 - 2:15pm

    Our new paper in Psychophysiology compares neural indices of motor inhibition and prepotent motor activity in different versions of the Go/Nogo paradigm, and finds that the majority of studies using this task to probe motor inhibition employ suboptimal task designs that don't necessitate a large degree of inhibitory control. The article can be found here.
