Who we are

Welcome to the home page of the MINI research project.

About MINI

The purpose of the Mechanisms in Neurological Issues study project is to
have a hands on experience in developing and implementing paradigms regarding cognitive functions as can be used with persons who have recent neurological insults due to tumor, stroke, and other disease processes. In this study project we are currently developing two lines of study.

The first is a new paradigm for examing affective priming, in persons with right hemisphere damage, using both picture primes and targets. The second involves the use of a virtual Morris Water Maze to investigate theories of spatial navigation and memory in persons with medial temporal lobe impairments.

We hope to have some Theory of Mind and Ethics components in the project, as well as our practical needs of computer science for programming testing enviroments, and neuroscience and neuropsychology in terms of implementing testing and the development of research questions from the grounding theories
involved.

members determined to see this through.
We are looking at some preliminary
results currently. There have been
3 papers published and conference
presentations from the Neuroethics
