Jeff Annis

Postdoctoral Fellow
Research Area: Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience

My research involves understanding the mechanisms and representations involved in memory and perception. I received my PhD from the University of South Florida in 2014 where I studied the relationship between memory and perception via sequential dependencies. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow working with Tom Palmeri in the CATLAB using computational models and empirical investigations to understand the dynamics of perceptual expertise.
