Jeremy Manning studies how contextual cues affect how we acquire, store, and retrieve information about ourselves and our surrounding environment.  Contextual cues are the set of internal thoughts and external stimuli that define each moment’s unique fingerprint.  These cues affect nearly all levels of information processing, enabling us to function by making reasonable inferences and choices in the real world.  His lab builds formal computational models, influenced and constrained by behavioral and neural data, to explore the computations underlying context-dependent information processing.
