We study different types of learning and how the different ways we learn can influence memory, decision making, cognitive control, and other goal-directed behaviors in children, adolescents, and adults. Our work is informed by theoretical models and models of animal physiology. We use tools such as fMRI and computational models to make inferences about cognitive and neural mechanisms that underlie the behaviors we observe in the lab. Our research has broad applications for numerous areas within psychology and cognitive neuroscience, and potential impact for areas such as education, juvenile justice, and mental health.
