Learning & Brain Development Lab

Exploring and learning about the world requires us to pay attention to meaningful information and encode this information into memory. Our research examines the idea that attention and memory are functionally integrated early in life and that the development of selective attention contributes to improvements in learning and memory. 

The Learning and Brain Development Lab is located at University Square in the uptown neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. To learn more about what we do, browse our website and feel free to contact us at lbdlab@tulane.edu or (504) 862-3312.

Dr. Markant will be accepting graduate students for Fall 2019. If you are an undergraduate and hoping to apply to work in the LBDLab, please download and fill out this form Undergraduate Research Assistant Application Form and send it to Brittany Justin (bjustin@tulane.edu) along with your CV.

This week's researcher of the week is Claire!

Claire is a doctoral candidate in the Tulane School Psychology program from Vienna, Virginia. She earned her B.S. in Biological Sciences from Columbia University in 2009 and her M.S. in Developmental Psychology from The University of Texas at Dallas in 2014. Her research interests center around face processing and early social skills during the first year of life, especially to inform prevention, early identification and treatment in the context of maladaptive development. Her career goals include carrying out clinical work and research with early childhood populations. Claire is excited to have matched at the University of Denver with the Right Start for Infant Mental Health team for her psychology pre-doctoral internship, and she will be moving Colorado this summer to continue working with little ones!

Fun Fact: Claire is a yoga teacher at Free to Be Power yoga in New Orleans.
