Human Memory and Cognition Lab

Dr. P and student

We are graduate students (in the BCAN PhD and Masters programs), undergraduate students (doing independent study or honors projects or other research for experience and fun), and occasionally, post-docs and bright high school interns from local high schools, all working with Dr. P (Zehra Peynircioglu).

We are interested in exploring all intriguing phenomena related to memory and cognition. Some of the current projects we are working on involve:

  • Face Recognition
  • Voice Recognition
  • Metamemory
  • Music Perception and Cognition
  • Bilingual Cognition
  • Biases in Decision Making
  • Emotion
