Psychology: Cognitive Control; Cultural Influences on Cognition


In an attempt to evaluate the role of neural plasticity imbalance as an underlying factor in schizophrenic pathology, I am investigating top-down biasing of subliminal priming effects on task switching performance.  
As part of a research program on the effects of culture on modes of cognitive functioning, I am investigating the effects of independence/interdependence of self-construal on visual field dependence/sensitivity, reasoning and academic attainments.
