Have you ever wondered how people learn a new skill or competency? 

Not just from the schoolhouse repetition we encountered growing up, but from our failures as well as our triumphs? How does our capacity to learn grow as we mature?  What makes learning easier or harder?  

Join us for an interesting evening with Dr. Jarrod Lewis-Peacock from the University of Texas at Austin to answer these and other questions about how attention, working memory, and long term memory interact in the human brain. 

You will gain a better understanding of the science of how memory and learning work together to help people achieve their goals.

Jarrod Lewis-Peacock is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. He received a B.S. in Computer Engineering, M.S. in Computer Science, and Ph.D. in Psychology with Brad Postle at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He then completed three years of postdoctoral research with Ken Norman and Jonathan Cohen in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University before joining the faculty at the University of Texas. Dr. Lewis-Peacock’s research focuses on human learning and memory. His lab uses a combination of behavioral methods, functional neuroimaging, and computational approaches to study how attention, working memory, and long-term memory interact in the human brain, and to understand how people use these abilities to achieve goals.
