Dr. David Rothlein
Post-doctoral researcher at the VA Boston Healthcare System
David Rothlein is a postdoctoral researcher working for the Boston VA. After earning a BS in Cognitive Science from the University of Connecticut, he graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a PhD in Cognitive Science. His doctoral research involved using behavioral and fMRI experiments to study modality specific and abstract representations of letters in the mind and brain. His current research involves using stimulus similarity to investigate the role of perceptual processing in sustained attention tasks and using multi-voxel pattern analyses with fMRI data to investigate how attention interacts with the transmission of information in the brain.
