Trey Hedden is a Research Associate at Harvard University/ Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging. His research interests focus on the flexibility, organization and neural representation of executive control processes, including plasticity related to developmental, cultural, and strategic influences. His research also looks at development of executive control across the life span, emphasizing adult age differences, individual differences in executive control and their relation to complex cognition, including memory, reasoning, and decision making.
