Our research focuses on two main topics:
a. The relations between working memory (WM) and cognitive control. Specifically, how the contents of working memory is controlled, and how, in turn, it is used to control behavior. Toward answering these questions we use behavioral experiments, EEG/ERP and functional imaging (fMRI).
b. Group-level cognition. We aim to characterize the cognitive abilities and limitations of groups, and understand their relationship to individual-level cognition. For example, we study the capacity of group-working-memory, wisdom (and foolness) of crowds effects, and group decision making
