Graduate Teaching Assistant

Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience: Time Perception, Numerosity, Attention, Memory, Psychophysics

Candice is a third-year Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Ph.D. student at GMU conducting research in Dr. Martin Wiener’s spatial, temporal, action, representation (STAR) lab. Her research interests include how attention modulates and alters the perception of time in humans, to include identifying and better understanding the neural mechanisms of time perception. Currently, she is investigating such cognitive processes as numerosity-time perception interactions and multisensory integration. In the lab, she uses a variety of different tools in the armamentarium of Cognitive Neuroscience: functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Electroencephalography (EEG), and Psychophysics. 

Current Research

  • Using TMS-EEG to measure natural frequencies in human cortical regions.
  • Using TMS and behavioral measures to investigate temporal reproduction differences in multimodal stimuli.
