Daniel Howard Weissman
Faculty Associate, RCGD
Daniel Weissman's research uses a combination of behavioral methods and non-invasive brain imaging techniques to study how human beings pay attention to stimuli of interest while minimizing distraction from irrelevant stimuli. He is especially interested in the operation of mechanisms that detect and resolve conflict between competing mental representations, and how those influence the performance of cognitive tasks. Dr. Weissman's work also investigates the operation of conflict processing mechanisms in real-world situations and in clinical syndromes that are characterized by abnormally high levels of conflict processing.
