Dr. Ellmore earned his Ph.D. studying associative memory in the Cognition and Neural Systems Program in the Department of Psychology at The University of Arizona. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship studying the neural basis of language and memory at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, followed by an appointment as research assistant professor there investigating working memory using a combination of intracranial EEG and functional MRI. He moved to CUNY in 2012 and is now Professor of Psychology and head of the Memory and Cognition Lab at The City College of New York. His research focus is the cognitive neuroscience of memory, with an emphasis on the interaction between working and long-term memory. He primarily uses behavioral, functional MRI, and EEG methods in healthy subjects, but aspects of his research also involve clinical populations. He has published studies of brain structure and function in epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, autism, sleep disorders, and stroke.
