About Juliet Davidow
Dr. Davidow joined the Psychology Department as an Assistant Professor at Northeastern University in 2020, and established the Learning and Brain Development Lab. She earned her BA in Psychology from New York University, PhD in Psychology from Columbia University, and completed postdoctoral training at Harvard University.
The research conducted in the Learning and Brain Development Lab bridges classic areas in psychology, neuroscience, and computer science, to investigate different types of learning. The lab studies children, adolescents, and adults, to ask how learning behaviors change with age and can influence what is remembered, how decisions are made, and affects goals.
How do we use information we have learned? Does the way people learn and apply knowledge change across development? In the Learning and Brain Development lab, we investigate the development of brain systems for different ways of learning during adolescence, and the impact of learning on memory, decision making, and cognitive control. We are interested in understanding how behavioral and brain changes in adolescence may be adaptive for the situations and goals that arise in this stage of life.
