Dr. Bakkour’s research focuses on the cognitive and neural mechanisms by which relational memory contributes to decision making. Although it may seem obvious that many decisions rely on memory, how memories enter the decision process and the brain mechanisms that support such a process remain unknown. To explore the interactions between memory and decision making, Dr. Bakkour uses a combination of functional brain imaging, eyetracking, computational modeling, machine learning, and neuropsychological studies with patients that have known cognitive deficits.
