Kevin Paul Madore
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychology
BioI'm a Postdoctoral Fellow in Psychology at Stanford in Dr. Anthony Wagner's lab and the grateful recipient of an extramural Postdoctoral NRSA F32 from NIA/NIH.
I’m really interested in human memory, particularly what we call retrieval. My research addresses the following questions using a combination of behavioral, eyetracking (pupillometry), and neural (EEG, fMRI, concurrent EEG-fMRI, TMS) methods.
1) What are the mechanisms of memory retrieval?
2) What functions does retrieval serve beyond 'simple remembering'?
3) How do fluctuations in attention and goal-state orientations modulate retrieval?
4) How does aging affect mechanisms, functions, and modulations of retrieval?
My work has been published in PNAS, Psychological Science, Journal of Neuroscience, Cerebral Cortex, JEP:General, JEP:LMC, Psychology and Aging, and other peer-reviewed journals. I received a PhD in Psychology at Harvard in Dr. Dan Schacter's lab in 2017 where I was extramurally funded by the Beinecke Scholarship and Sackler Psychobiology Program, and a BA in Psychology and History from Middlebury College in 2011.
Social Science Research Scholar, Psychology
BioAs a developmental psychologist, my main areas of research are language development, language disorders, and early childhood development. My specific interests include individual differences in typically-developing and late-talking children. I have worked extensively with the MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventories (CDIs), developing the CDI Scoring program and serving on the CDI Advisory Board. Recent studies explored the causes and consequences of early language processing efficiency in typically-developing children, late talkers, and children born preterm. My current studies examine links between children's language processing skill, early learning environments, and individual differences in language development in monolingual and bilingual learners from diverse backgrounds. In addition to conducting studies that have a basic science focus, I am also Director of Program Evaluation for the Habla Conmigo project, overseeing the evaluation of parenting intervention programs designed to facilitate caregiver engagement in Latina mothers and their young children.
Senior Associate Dean for the Social Sciences and the Lewis M. Terman Professor
BioMarkman’s research interests include the relationship between language and thought; early word learning; categorization and induction; theory of mind and pragmatics; implicit theories and conceptual change, and how theory-based explanations can be effective interventions in health domains.
Davis-Brack Professor in the Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on the role of self in regulating behavior and on the ways in which the social world shapes the self. My work examines how cultures, including those of nation or region of origin, gender, social class, race, ethnicity, religion, and occupation, shape thought, feeling, and action.
