Matthew Tata

University of Lethbridge
E-mail: matthew.tata@uleth.ca
Phone: 403.394.3994

Address:
EP1156, 4401 University Drive W
Lethbridge, AB T1K 3M4 Canada

Area of Research:
Neuroscience

Research Interests:
Electroencephalography - aka EEG - is a way of measuring the electrical energy generated by brain cells. This lets us study how people think - how we use our attention, process rewarding and punishing information, and learn. It also helps us determine the neurological effects of things like stroke and prenatal alcohol exposure.
