Jihye Rye

Jihye’s research interest broadly centers on agency – specifically, on how an individual obtains a sense of control over one’s body, and thus establish a sense of self. She approaches this question from an embodied perspective, where different layers of the nervous systems interact with one another in a complex manner to produce behaviors at will.

Sabrina L. Maoz

I am interested in how the brain encodes episodic memories, particularly the contextual and spatial features of an experience, and how the neural substrates of memory and spatial encoding remap across different experiences. My research approach involves recording single-unit and intracranial oscillatory electrophysiology in human participants performing virtual and augmented reality tasks, both while ambulating freely and while remaining stationary.
