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 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 ( along with your CV.
