The main focus of research in our Nemeth Lab is the cognitive neuroscience and the neuropsychology behind implicit statistical learning. We explore the entire process of implicit learning from memory formation to consolidation and investigate how this process is affected by age, sleep, and various disorders such as autism, Tourette syndrome, Huntington’s disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment, and sleep-related disorders. These studies could lead us not only to a deeper understanding of this fundamental learning mechanism but also to discover how humans rewire their skills and boost habit change in general.
