Dr. Katz’s research focuses on the comparative mechanism of learning and cognition. Ongoing projects involve behavioral and functional neuroimaging methods to investigate change detection, concept learning, and the behavioral and neural correlates of working dogs.
We study humans and nonhumans in order to explore the comparative mechanisms of learning and cognition, using traditional operant methods and functional neuroimaging. Ongoing projects include change detection, concept learning, and working memory.
