FEATURED SPEAKER

Julie Bugg, PhD
Associate Professor of Psychological & Brain Sciences, School of Arts & Sciences

Professor Bugg is interested in the use of cognitive control to achieve attention and memory-related goals. She is principal investigator of the Cognitive Control & Aging Lab. Her research explores the mechanisms that are used to resolve interference in conflict tasks (e.g., Stroop) and the various levels at which these mechanisms operate (e.g., list-level vs. item-specific level).
