Research Interests

Why do we forget? In particular, why does it sometimes happen in the time it takes to walk into another room? Dr. Craig researches this phenomenon, known as interference, and what causes it to occur. She is also interested in the cognitive basis for creativity, studies of cognition across the lifespan, and how we can use our understanding of neuroscience to better inform cognitive theory.
