Lingua Memoria – The Buchsbaum Lab

In the Buchsbaum Laboratory we study how conscious memories are formed, maintained, and reactivated in the brain. We use functional neuroimging, eye-tracking, and computational modeling to better understand the nature of memory.

The Buchsbaum laboratory studies how memories are stored, represented, and reactivated in the brain. We use functional neuroimaging, behavioural, and eye-tracking methods to investigate conscious memories. We are especially interested in how the quality and fidelity of complex memories–whether lagnuage-based, visual, or multimodal——can be captured, quantified, and modeled using data acquired from neuroimaging and eye-tracking measures.

Our lab is in the Rotman Research Institute, ( which is located at Baycrest Hospital in Toronto, Canada.
