Michael Posner on Research Tools in Cognitive Neuroscience


In this second part of his interview with goCognitive, Dr. Michael Posner from the University of Oregon discusses a wide range of methods that have been used in cognitive neuroscience. Ranging from basic behavioral data like error rates and reaction times, to modern brain imaging techniques and reversible lesions methods, these tools have enabled a better understanding of the functional structure of the brain. The interview was conducted at the University of Oregon by Justin Mayes, a beginning graduate student in cognitive neuroscience at the U of O.

  1. Hi there, fantastic video thanks for sharing! I was wondering if you could provide some references for the studies Dr. Posner talks about? I have an assignment to write on how cognitive neuroscience techniques have added to our understanding of attention, so this was just a gem of a find! The particular primate study of single cells within the ACG sounded fascinating. Thanks again!

  2. Would have been interesting to know what is the aplication from DTI for development of the neural system in young children the so called critical or sensitive periods. 🙂
