Our research is focused on understanding how episodic memories are represented and maintained by cortico-hippocampal systems, and how these memories can be shaped by modulatory factors such as emotional arousal. This work depends on a combination of cognitive neuroscience methods, including fMRI (multivariate pattern analysis, functional connectivity, high-resolution imaging, etc.) and EEG (time-frequency analysis).

If you’re interested in any of these topics, get in touch! Dr. Ritchey will be accepting applications from prospective PhD students this fall (for matriculation in Fall 2018). You can find more information about the program and application instructions here. All of our other positions are currently filled, but there may be openings in the future.
