Darcy Burgund specializes in high-level visual cognition and memory, with a particular focus on object recognition. Research in her lab employs a variety of methods, including divided-visual-field presentations to investigate hemisphere asymmetries in visual form recognition, and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the particular brain regions involved. She teaches courses on cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging techniques, and research methods.
