Here in the Carrasco Lab we employ a wide array of cognitive neuroscience and psychological research methods, including behavioral psychophysics, fMRI, EEG, MEG, computational modeling, and TMS to study the interactions between attention and perception.

 We are located in the NYU Department of Psychology and associated with the Center for Neural Science as part of the Cognition and Perception Doctoral Program under the supervision of Professor Marisa Carrasco
