Dr. Logan Trujillo is a researcher in the Department of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, Texas, USA. Dr. Trujillo holds degrees in mathematics (BS), physics (MS) and psychology (BS, MA, PhD) from the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA. His research interests include the cognitive neuroscience of human perception, learning, memory, attention, and consciousness, as studied via behavioral, electroencephalographic (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques. Dr. Trujillo investigates both the normal performance of these cognitive functions and the changes in these functions with sleep deprivation.

I am a graduate student in the Cognitive area of the Psychology department. I earned my BA in Psychology from the University of California San Diego in 2007, and worked for two years post graduation on a longitudinal study of the genetic basis of alcoholism in the lab of Dr. Marc Schuckit. There I became interested in examining alcoholism as a disorder of inhibitory and cognitive control processes through the use of EEG, behavioral, and genetic analysis. In the Schnyer lab, I am continuing to explore the basis of those processes in non-clinical populations using EEG and other techniques. I am broadly interested in characterizing self-monitoring and control processes as they relate to memory, learning, and decision-making for both normal and clinical populations.
