The Motivation & Cognition Interface Lab


Welcome to the Motivation and Cognition Interface Lab at Texas A&M University.

Our research is aimed at untangling the intricacies of the social, dispositional, and motivational factors involved in human decision making across the lifespan. We also explore both explicit and implicit procedural learning systems by using category-learning and decision-making tasks. We employ a three-pronged approach of using behavioral, computational and neuroscience methods to examine fundamental issues in cognition.  For more information see our publications page.
