Vanderbilt Visual Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory


Our research focuses on how we perceive, remember, and respond to the most relevant information in our complex environment.  To study how our brains perform these astounding feats we use a variety of methods.  These include measurements of behavior (manual responses and eye movements), the magnetic and electrical responses from the working brains of humans and nonhuman primates, neuroanatomy, and functional connectivity.

  1. Good press on Rob Reinhart’s work with Sohee Park’s group. They are finding that brain stimulation can normalize behavior and EEG activity in patients with schizophrenia.


  3. February 2015: The lab got its second R01 from the National Eye Institute!  This work combines our electrophysiological work with the modeling expertise of Gordon Logan.

  4. Rob Reinhart had a cool paper published in PNAS.  Please check out this beautiful work.


  6. Kei Fukuda won the APA Division 3 (Experimental Psychology) early career award for the Best 2014 Psychonomic Society Poster.  Great job Kei. An exciting set of experiments, beautifully presented!

  7. March 23, 2014: Rob Reinhart is getting well deserved attention for his cool ERP/tDCS findings reported in Journal of Neuroscience.




  11. February 20, 2014: Congratulations to Rob Reinhart on his NRSA from NIMH.

  12. September 1, 2013: Congratulations to A.J. Heritage on his NRSA!

  13. June 18, 2013: Josh Cosman’s individual NRSA was funded.  Congratulations, Josh!
