Research Description:

Dr. Johnson's research is concerned with using event-related brain potentials (ERPs) to characterize and quantify the nature of the processes and neural systems underlying such cognitive processes as deception, executive functions, long-term memory and, more recently, those in the realm of social cognitive neuroscience. Current scientific collaborations are aimed at investigating the cognitive and neural basis of the changes in memory and executive functions with aging, the mechanism of action of sedative drugs on memory and stuttering.
