Dr. Robert Ross earned a B.A. at Fairleigh Dickinson University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in psychology at Boston University. Professor Ross’ field of study is in cognitive neuroscience with a particular focus on learning and memory. He uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) in combination with genetic profiling to explore how people learn, store, and retrieve memories. He is particularly interested in determining the neural correlates of how we keep the details of similar memories separate from each other. Additionally, Dr. Ross is working to find a way to predict the types of cognitive change an individual with Parkinson’s Disease will experience. Dr. Ross has published multiple journal articles in leading peer-reviewed journals, including The Journal of Neuroscience, Neuroscience, Learning and Memory, and Neuroimage. At UNH, he teaches cognitive neuroscience, memory systems, and directs independent research and honors theses.
