Fields of Interest
Dr. Mudrik studies high-level cognition and its neural substrates, using electrophysiological, behavioral and imaging methods: how are concepts represented in the brain, and what are the mechanisms of semantic integration? What is the function of conscious awareness, and which brain processes are involved? More specifically, the lab explores the role of consciousness in integrating semantic information, and the neural underpinnings of semantically judging the relations between two objects or concepts
