Research Interests
Prof. Rogers and his lab are interested in understanding human semantic memory; that is, knowledge about the meanings of words, objects, and events. Specifically, his lab would like to understand how semantic knowledge is stored and represented in the mind and brain, how it is acquired throughout development, how semantic tasks are performed by healthy adults and experts, and how semantic knowledge degrades in dementia.
