Academic Focus

Cognitive Neuroscience

Dr. Wilson completed his PhD in Experimental Psychology with Dr. Martha J. Farah at the University of Pennsylvania and a post-doctoral research fellowship with Dr. George R. Mangun at Duke University before coming to Gettysburg College in 2004. His research combines non-invasive brain stimulation (tDCS) with eye-tracking and behavioral measures to study higher level visual cognition, including visual attention and object recognition. Dr. Wilson serves as co-chair of the Neuroscience program.
