Christopher L. Asplund

I am a cognitive (neuro)scientist, meaning that I explore our amazing cognitive abilities and how they are realized in the brain.

My lab's research is centered on understanding attentional control and consciousness. Together with our collaborators, members of my lab also study how to achieve better interactions with devices and our environment, including through training or experience. Our primary investigative tool is behavioral experimentation. It is often complemented by functional neuroimaging (fMRI), with increasing use of electroencephalography (EEG) and eye measures as well.

You can learn more about our work from my CV, list of publications, ORCiD profie, or page on Google Scholar.
