Anne B. Sereno

Degree:  Ph.D. Psychology, Harvard University, 1991

Research Interests:

The long range objective of my research is to understand and characterize the physiological mechanisms of attention, short-term memory, and the programming of eye movements, in order to help in the diagnosis, treatment, and etiology of various diseases and disorders involving the disruption of these functions.
