Presenting the third and final lecture in a series of three, on the topic of trans-cranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), organized by Dr. Jeffrey Zacks, and funded by the McDonnell CSN. Guest Lecturer, Dr. Marian Berryhill, is an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Program in Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno. Professor Berryhill earned her doctorate in Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College, studying response selection and visual cognition. She served as a Post-Doc at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania and later at Temple University. Her research shifted toward memory, conducting studies in visual working memory, autobiographical memory, episodic future thinking, associative memory and implicit memory. She uses behavioral, eyetracking, neuropsychology, neurostimulation (tDCS), and neuroimaging (fMRI) methods to investigate the neural bases of memory.
