"I'm an assistant professor at the Neurology Department at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, with a joint appointment at the Department of Cognitive Science. I study language, both because I find it fascinating as a cognitive faculty, and because I believe much can be learned about more domain-general cognitive processes, such as temporal sequencing, through the study of language. Probably the most appealing aspect of an academic job for me is talking to junior researchers; their curiosity inspires me, their momentum drives me, and their achievements thrill me. While a cognitive scientist by profession, I have a deep love for philosophy, sociology, literature, music, cinematography and other forms of visual arts, and it's a good conversation on these topics that I often seek when I'm not working."
"I am interested in the cognitive processes that allow us to speak or write. More specifically, my work focuses on language production in relation to other cognitive functions. During my PhD, I used a combination of behavioral and EEG experiments to characterize the interface between language and motor systems. In particular, I studied motor preparation during word typing in relation with linguistic processing. My next projects will target executive functions, such as error monitoring, and their role during language production.
Outside the lab, I find that there is nothing better than a good book in a nice coffee shop."
As an undergraduate, my involvement in Autism Spectrum Disorders research led me to explore cognitive categorization and its relationship to pitch perception. I look forward to continuing cognitive neuroscience research while part of the lab and studying the cognitive mechanisms of language acquisition. I am an avid music and arts lover, and enjoy spending time outdoors."
"I am a research assistant in the Division of Cognitive Neurology/Neuropsychology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and I am primarily interested in language production. My previous research focused on the cognitive functions involved in spelling and learning to spell by investigating the causes of developmental dysgraphia. In the Nozari Lab, I intend to study the nature of the limitations on working memory in spoken and written language production."
"I'm studying neuroscience, biochemistry and Spanish at Temple University, which is kind enough to fund my efforts as Dr. Nozari's lab minion. I'm very excited for this opportunity, as it helps prepare my brain to study its neural substrates for language.
Nick works on a study of monitoring in Spanish-English bilinguals. The goal of the study is to compare whether, and how, self-monitoring differs between first and second languages, which in turn informs theories of language monitoring.
