- The Mechanisms Underlying the ASD Advantage in Visual Search
Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Boston, 100 Morrissey Blvd, Boston, MA, 02125, USA
J Autism Dev Disord 46:1513-27. 2016
..We speculate that this new conceptualization may offer a better understanding of some of the behavioral symptoms associated with ASD, such as over-focusing and restricted interests. ..
- Delayed Match Retrieval: a novel anticipation-based visual working memory paradigm
Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Boston, USA
Dev Sci 19:892-900. 2016
..In addition, this paradigm can be readily scaled up to test toddlers or older children without significant modification...
- A memory span of one? Object identification in 6.5-month-old infants
Psychology Department, University of Massachusetts Boston, 100 Morrissey Blvd, Boston, MA 02125, USA
Cognition 97:153-77. 2005
..The memory span of one may be due to immaturity of the neural structures underlying working memory such that intervening items overwrite the existing storage...
- A new method for calibrating perceptual salience across dimensions in infants: the case of color vs. luminance
Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Boston, MA 02125, USA
Dev Sci 9:482-9. 2006
..5-month-old infants noticed a color, but not a luminance, change while tracking an occluded object. Our method should have numerous applications in the study of bottom-up effects on infant attention and visual working memory...

- Off to a Good Start: The Early Development of the Neural Substrates Underlying Visual Working Memory
Department of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Boston Boston, MA, USA
Front Syst Neurosci 10:68. 2016
..Motivated by both theoretical and methodological considerations, we offer some recommendations for future directions for the field. ..
- The neural mechanisms of object working memory: what is where in the infant brain?
Department of Psychology, University of Massaschusetts Boston, 100 Morrissey Blvd, Boston, MA 02125, USA
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 28:113-21. 2004
..We believe that this shift in focus is desirable both in light of what recent results on medial temporal lobe processing reveal about object working memory, and given how well these results fit the behavioral developmental data...
