Dr. Matthew G. Rhodes examines human memory and metacognition. One line of work investigates how subjective experience is related to memory performance, particularly for tasks such as predicting future memory performance. Other work examines subjective experience and its relation to memory accuracy, including how it pertains to aging populations. Dr. Rhodes also maintains lines of work examining memory for faces, predictors of individual differences in memory accuracy, and recognition memory processes.

Dr. Jessica K. Witt examines the effects of action on perception. For example, softball players who are hitting better than others see the ball as bigger. Objects that are easier to block look to be moving slower than objects that are more difficult to block. People who are obese see distances as farther. Her findings demonstrate that perception is not just a function of optical information but is also influenced by the perceiver's body, abilities, and intentions.
