Laura Libby, Postdoctoral Fellow
The successful navigation of daily life relies largely on our ability to remember past experiences, keep relevant knowledge in mind, and synthesize the appropriate information within a given context or towards a particular goal. Laura's research focuses on using functional neuroimaging techniques to map how medial temporal lobe subregions, including the hippocampus and adjacent cortical areas, interact within large-scale brain networks to support memory-guided behavior.
Laura received her PhD in Psychology from UC Davis in 2014. She has a BS in Human Development with a research focus from Cornell University and held a position as a post-baccalaureate research assistant at the NIMH in Bethesda, MD. In addition to science, she loves sunshine, wine, and coffee, and may have found utopia in Northern California.
