J. Benjamin Hutchinson


Beginning in the spring of 2017, I'll be starting a lab in the Department of Psychology at Northeastern University. If you are interested in joining the lab as a graduate student or as a post-doc in the fall of 2017, please contact me at:

I am currently postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroscience at Princeton University. I work in the Turk-Browne Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Nicholas Turk-Browne. I primarily use functional neuroimaging techniques to research the interaction of attention and memory in the human brain.

I can also be reached for all other matters at:

My Google Scholar profile can be found here.
