Matthew Moore

Post Doctoral Fellow

Email: ude.sionilli@61eroomm

Matt Moore received his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2018, and is currently a Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellow. His main research interests include the examination of cognitive and affective processes through the investigation of brain structure, brain function, and behavior, using complementary methodologies. More specifically, he is interested in examining aspects of cognitive control, emotion processing, decision making, social cognition, and individual differences related to these processes. He uses techniques such as structural and functional MRI, EEG/ERPs, and optical imaging (EROS, NIRS), as well as combinations of these techniques (e.g., simultaneous fMRI-EEG-EROS), in conjunction with behavioral and neuropsychological assessment tools.

Chris Zwilling is interested in model based cognitive neuroscience which uses cognitive or behavioral models to gain insight into the underlying neural substrate. He is currently interested in models of higher order cognition, including decision making processes and working memory.  To accomplish these goals, he employs various statistical methodologies, including Bayesian analyses and structural equation modeling.
