overview

  • Dr. Buzzell is an assistant professor of psychology in the Cognitive Neuroscience Program at FIU and also a member of the Center for Children and Families. He leads the Neural Dynamics of Control Laboratory, which is devoted to understanding how individuals monitor and control their behavior, a set of processes known as cognitive control (also referred to as executive functioning or self-regulation). At a basic level, the lab employs neural, computational, and behavioral tools to pinpoint the neurocognitive processes involved in cognitive control, asking how these processes develop across childhood and adolescence. At the applied level, the lab seeks to understand how the development of cognitive control relates to social behavior and the emergence of social anxiety. Ultimately, this work has the capacity to provide unique insights into basic developmental processes, while also informing policy or intervention work for families, schools, and clinicians.
