Suzanne Corkin, Ph.D., directs the Behavioral Neuroscience Laboratory in MIT’s Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. She and her colleagues address questions concerning the cognitive and neural basis of learning and memory in humans, using tests that assess specific cognitive processes, structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI, magnetoencephalography (MEG) and genotyping. Research participants include patients with global amnesia, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease, as well as young and older individuals without neurological disease.
