Anthony D. Wagner
Anthony Wagner is a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Stanford University, where he directs the Stanford Memory Laboratory and co-directs the Stanford Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging. His research focuses on the psychology and neurobiology of learning, memory, and executive function in healthy individuals and, through collaboration, in clinical populations (schizophrenia; Alzheimer’s disease). His lab uses a variety of brain imaging techniques, including functional magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography, to understand how the brain builds and retrieves memories and to examine the processes that enable goal-directed behavior. In addition to his basic science and translational research, he examines the implications of neuroscience for the law as a member of the MacArthur Foundation’s Research Network on Law and Neuroscience.
