Kate Sherrill, M.A.

 

 

Kate is a doctoral student in the Brain, Behavior, and Cognition program at Boston University. Her current interests are in utilizing a virtual navigation paradigm to better understand human memory function during navigation in a spatial environment.

 

Kate's research interests involve using fMRI to test the mechanisms for encoding and retrieval of spatiotemporal trajectories through an environment from varying visual perspectives as well as associations encoded between sensory stimuli and specific spatial locations.
