Research in CEMNL focuses on human perception and memory from a broad-based, computational perspective. To shed light on these basic cognitive processes, we find converging evidence from behavioral studies and neurophysiological measures in combination with neural network and Bayesian modeling. Ongoing research topics include recognition/recall memory, testing effects, metamemory, letter/word perception, face perception, semantics, shifts of attention, and social cognition.
