The Gazzaley lab is a
cognitive neuroscience research lab at the University of California, San
Francisco focused on studying the neural mechanisms of memory, attention and
perception, how these processes change with childhood development, normal aging
and dementia, and how we might intervene therapeutically to alleviate cognitive
The lab utilizes state of
the art techniques and analytical approaches to address its scientific and
clinical goals by coupling performance assessment, functional magnetic
resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and transcranial
magnetic stimulation (TMS). More recently, the lab has
been developing custom-designed video games and coupling it with neurofeedback and
transcranial electrical stimulation
(tDCS and tACS) to enhance cognitive abilities.
Under the direction of Dr.
Adam Gazzaley the lab supports faculty, post-doctoral fellows, PhD students,
medical students, fellows, residents, research associates, and undergraduates in
their research and educational development.
