Dr. Ozubko's research examines the cognitive and neuropsychological properties of human memory. Dr. Ozubko uses both experimental and neuroimaging techniques to investigate episodic and spatial memory. As for episodic memory, much of his research focuses on distinctiveness effects in memory, the influence of semantics on memory, and properties of forgetting over time. For spatial memory, Dr. Ozubko investigates the neuropsychological consequences of learning and navigating in new and familiar environments. His lab uses techniques ranging from classic cognitive experimental paradigms to mathematical models and virtual reality headsets.
