Christopher L. Asplund
I am a cognitive neuroscientist who explores our amazing cognitive abilities and how they are realized in the brain.
Research in my lab revolves around understanding attentional control, its relationship to consciousness, and its implications for better interactions with devices and our environment. My team and our collaborators also explore how individuals differ in their attentional control and how they change through training or experience. To do so, we conduct behavioral experiments and employ functional neuroimaging (fMRI).

I am also an inaugural faculty member at Yale-NUS College in the Division of Social Sciences. As a liberal arts college, Yale-NUS focuses on excellent undergraduate education from the humanities to the sciences, active learning in small seminar-style classes, participation in community initiatives, and deep investigation through research.
In addition to my primary appointment as an Assistant Professor at Yale-NUS, I am a Primary Investigator at the N.1 Institute for Health at the National University of Singapore (NUS), and I have affiliations with the Clinical Imaging Research Centre (CIRC) and the NUS Department of Psychology.
