Brief Bio:
Dr. Hurley's research falls in the area of cognitive neuroscience, using techniques such as eye tracking, electroencephalography, and magnetic resonance imaging to better understand how the human brain processes language, recognizes objects, and links the two together. His research program involves testing typical younger and older adults as well as individuals with disorders of language (aphasia) and object recognition (agnosia). Much of this work is focused on the role of the anterior temporal lobes in verbal and nonverbal knowledge.
