George (Ron) Mangun, P.hD.

PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
grmangun@ucdavis.edu

Professor Mangun is a neuroscientist interested in perception and cognition. His work on the cognitive neuroscience of attention investigates how we perceive, attend, ignore and become aware of events in our environment. Analysis of electroencephalographams (EEG) and event-related brain potentials (ERP) from healthy persons and special patient groups provide high temporal resolution measures of information processing in the human brain.  To identify the brain systems and circuits involved in attention, tools such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) are used in conjunction with electrophysiology. The information obtained from these combined behavioral, neuropsychological, and neurophysiological studies yields insight into the computational and functional neuroanatomical structure of human cognition and is essential for addressing the deficits in attention and awareness that accompany neurological and psychiatric disorders.
