Matt Dye, Ph.D.
Brain and Cognitive Sciences, University of Rochester
Matt Dye conducts research on brain plasticity in children and adults. He is interested in the effects of altered or enhanced sensory experience in the development of visual attention skills. By comparing children and adults who do or do not play action video games, his work has suggested that playing such games is related to increased cognitive resources that results in a wider spatial distribution of attention, faster attentional recovery and the ability to simultaneously track a greater number of independent, moving objects. Dr. Dye is especially interested in how these changes may interact with the point in development at which exposure occurs. [panel : cognitive + social]

Anthony Wagner, Ph.D.
Stanford Memory Laboratory
Anthony Wagner is Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and Director of the Stanford Memory Lab. Broadly, the Stanford Memory Laboratory aims to understand how memory is organized and supported by the mind and brain. A particular emphasis is placed on understanding the interaction between cognitive control and long-term memory, as well as on delineating the nature of "cross-talk" between different forms of memory (e.g., interactions between declarative and nondeclarative processes). In the course of these efforts, the Lab further aims to characterize the functional contributions of prefrontal and medial temporal regions to learning and remembering. Dr. Wagner's research adopts a multi-modal imaging approach that combines the spatial resolution of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with the temporal resolution of magnetoencephalography (MEG) and, more recently, electroencephalography (EEG).
