Coordinating cognition at the fingertips: Insights from investigations into skilled typing

April 19, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Presented by Dr. Matthew Crump Department of Psychology (Brooklyn College)

Dr. Crump will discuss a range of questions relevant to many domains in cognition that is answered through skilled typewriting tasks. These include how people use spatial cognition to navigate the keyboard, how people use cognitive control to detect and correct errors and plan movements, and how people use learning and memory to become sensitive to the statistical structure of letter sequences and type words fluently with practice. Finally, Dr. Crump will talk about some recent new directions using EEG and TMS that test cognitive models by examining neuro correlates of cognitive and motor control networks involved in skilled typing.
