J. Benjamin Hutchinson


I am a 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.
