Natalia Córdova is a cognitive neuroscientist who uses fMRI to study interactions between the processes of attention, learning, and memory. In particular, she is interested in how what we pay attention to influences brain activity in the medial temporal lobe—a region critical for learning and memory. She is currently doing work with infants in an effort to understand how they—despite not having fully developed brains—are such great learners. She is also interested in education and the theory and practice of teaching.
