Professor Cognitive and brain sciences, University of Nevada
Jacqueline (Jacquie) Snow is an Assistant Professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno. Jacquie completed her Masters and PhD at the University of Melbourne, Australia, before completing two years of postoctoral training in the United Kingdom, and a further five years in Canada. During this time, she developed a range of special fMRI techniques to study how objects are represented in the human brain. At the University of Nevada Reno, Jacquie teaches undergraduate and graduate students about the theory and practice of science, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), clinical neuropsychology, object perception, and perception and action. She heads a research laboratory –the ‘Real World Cognition Lab’ , which consists of four doctoral students and two postdoctoral fellows. Jacquie’s lab examines how humans recognize and make decisions about objects, with a particular focus on the behavioral and neural correlates of real-world object vision, how neural structures in the brain code and represent action-relevant information, and how object information is integrated across sensory modalities. They use a range of scientific approaches, including fMRI, EEG, eye-movements, psychophysics, and the study of neuropsychological patients with discrete brain damage. The lab is supported by grants from the National Institute of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Clinical Translational Research Infrastructure Network (CTR-IN).
