Introducing the OMNI Project: Optimizing Memory using Neural Information

The lab is excited to announce the OMNI (Optimizing Memory using Neural Information) project, a new endeavor aimed at leveraging both behavioral and neural data to develop a system that improves how people learn and retain new information. OMNI is supported by a National Science Foundation grant to Todd Gureckis (PI) and Lila Davachi (co-PI). Read on to learn more about the project.

Translating Cognitive Science to EdTech: Searching for Impact

I’m a post-doc in the Gureckis lab working on translating some of the ideas in cognitive science in educationally-relevant directions. In this post, I will describe my own journey within the Gureckis lab to bridge this gap!
