Psych Close-Up is a series of ongoing presentations where the students and faculty get to know the professors from a personal, academic and research background. It has been very successful (Standing room only) ongoing presentation in the Psychology department for the past 4 1/2 years. Each semester we have a new presenter and this month we have Dr. Ben Levy (Psychology Department) .The topic this month is:

Title: Cognitive Control and Memory

Dr. Ben Levy uses behavioral and neuroimaging methods to understand the interactions between cognitive control and memory. For example, he has argued that attempting to stop a memory from coming to mind can actually cause later forgetting of that event. He has also published research on the functional architecture of the prefrontal cortex, cross-language interference during second-language acquisition, and the distinction between recollection and familiarity as different forms of long-term memory.
