Monica Rosenberg, Ph.D.
Monica Rosenberg is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago. Before coming to Chicago, she received her Ph.D. and postdoctoral training in the Department of Psychology at Yale. Before that, she was an undergraduate at Brown, where she studied cognitive neuroscience. Monica’s work uses functional MRI, behavioral experiments, and machine learning methods to investigate how we pay attention and understand the consequences of attention fluctuations for memory and learning.
Jin is the lab manager for the CAB Lab. He is interested in the neural dynamics of sustained attention and emotion, and their influence on memory. Jin received his B.S. from Peking University and his M.A. from the MA Program in the Social Sciences (MAPSS) at the University of Chicago. Outside the lab, you can find him playing basketball or having fun with his cat.
Hayoung Song, M.S.
Hayoung is a doctoral student in the Integrative Neuroscience Program. Hayoung’s research focuses on understanding the neural state dynamics relevant for cognition and their computational mechanisms. She uses naturalistic tasks in human behavioral and fMRI studies.
Anna is a graduate student in the Cognitive Psychology Program. Anna is interested in how aspects of attention change over time and across individuals. When she’s not in lab, you can usually find Anna out for a run or trying to find the best chips and salsa in the city.
Ziwei is a graduate student in the Cognitive Psychology Program. She is interested in the neural underpinning of human learning and how attention helps us achieve flexible learning behaviors. Ziwei likes some good music, singing, watching movies and genuine human connections!
Alisa is a graduate student in the MA Program in the Social Sciences (MAPSS) psychology concentration. Alisa is currently interested in neural dynamics, consciousness, memory, and attention. Outside the lab, she is usually exploring the city, hiking, or writing fiction.
Anthony is a third-year at The College, expecting to graduate with the Class of 2023 with degrees in Neuroscience and Psychology. He is interested in how emotional states affect the relationship between attention and memory. In his free time, he enjoys watching anime, exercising, and practicing his French.
Taysha is an undergraduate student at the college, expecting to graduate with the Class of 2024 with a degree in Neuroscience and a minor in Visual Arts. She is interested in studying fluctuations in sustained attention and memory. In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her friends, making jewelry, and baking!
Anu is an undergraduate in the College, expecting to graduate in the Class of 2024 with a degree in Neuroscience. She is interested in the mechanisms of sleep, as well as the intersection of sleep and memory. In her free time, you can find her dancing or drawing.
Laura is an undergraduate in the College expecting to graduate with the Class of 2024 with degrees in Cognitive Science and Biological Sciences, specializing in Quantitative Biology. She is interested in studying adolescent attention and cognitive development using computational modeling. When not working, you can find her crocheting, cooking, and playing with her cat.
Julia is an Instructional Assistant with the Department of Psychology. She is interested in the interactions between attention and memory, as well as how those interactions affect how we perceive and interact with the world around us. Outside of work, she likes to bake, play video games, and work towards her goal of visiting all 50 states.
