The Memory, Attention, and Individual Differences Lab at UO is concerned with examining basic memory and attention processes and individual differences in those processes. In particular, projects in the lab are aimed at gaining a better understanding of a number of topics related to memory and attention including working memory capacity, memory control, strategic search and retrieval, list discrimination, temporal context, goal maintenance, the focus of attention, and response inhibition to name a few. In all cases we combine aspects of experimental and differential psychology in an attempt to better understand the underlying constructs of interest. See the "Projects" page for a listing of current projects.


The lab is located in the Department of Psychology at the University of Oregon in the Lewis Integrative Science Building, room 248. The lab is equipped with five individual run rooms, one large group run room, and a large data analysis suite.

"We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
