What did you eat for breakfast two weeks ago?

Chances are you probably don’t remember exactly what you ate, but you can make an educated guess based on your usual breakfast selections. In fact, often times our prior expectations and knowledge about the environment are used to help us perform a variety of tasks.

Our lab is broadly interested in how our prior expectations influence our memory and decision making. Specifically, our research addresses how expectations compensate for noisy and incomplete memory (e.g. for color or objects in scenes) and impact our decision making for the future (e.g. patient health choices).
