Graduate Program: The Perception and Action Lab offers students a unique opportunity for training in neuropsychological approaches, visuomotor control, visual psychophysics, fMRI, and high-level object vision. As a research mentor, Dr. Marotta strives to help his students see that by continuing to develop their research skills and remain flexible in their approach, they will always be able to tackle the next question, no matter what form it may take. An advisor must help their trainees find the career that is the best fit for them, be it inside or outside academia. Dr. Marotta’s trainees develop in-demand skills, as is evident by their success in obtaining employment.
