Research

Memory

My past research included the following areas: effects of aging on cognition and memory, mathematical analysis of social structure, rote learning, concept attainment, psycholinguistics, and problem solving. More recent work has been concerned with lexical decision, models for recall and recognition, the role of memory in reading comprehension, and neuromagnetic correlates of imagery in memory. Currently I am studying basic aspects of recognition memory, applying signal detection theory.

Biography

I received a doctorate from the University of Michigan in 1952. My thesis was on exploratory behavior. Before coming to New York University in 1963, I was at Brooklyn College, the American Institute for Research, and the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. I also spent a year at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem while on a Guggenheim fellowship.
