Director of Information Technology

In an evolving career as a research scientist, educator, and IT executive, Dr. Jeremy Gray seeks to systematize knowledge and empower people across formal and informal groups. Technology both liberates and constrains how people work, and how they work together.

Estimating the Reproducibility of Psychological Science

Reproducibility is a defining feature of science, but the extent to which it characterizes current research is unknown. Scientific claims should not gain credence because of the status or authority of their originator but by the replicability of their supporting evidence. Even research of exemplary quality may have irreproducible empirical findings because of random or systematic error.

Thin Slices of Creativity: Using Single-Word Utterances to Assess Creative Cognition

We investigated the hypothesis that individual differences in creative cognition can be manifest even in brief responses, such as single-word utterances.

Neural Mechanisms of General Fluid Intelligence

We used an individual-differences approach to test whether general fluid intelligence (gF) is mediated by brain regions that support attentional (executive) control, including subregions of the prefrontal cortex.

Integration of Emotion and Cognition in the Lateral Prefrontal Cortex

We used functional MRI to test the hypothesis that emotional states can selectively influence cognition-related neural activity in lateral prefrontal cortex (PFC), as evidence for an integration of emotion and cognition.

Meditation Experience is Associated with Differences in Default Mode Network Activity and Connectivity

Many philosophical and contemplative traditions teach that “living in the moment” increases happiness. However, the default mode of humans appears to be that of mind-wandering, which correlates with unhappiness, and with activation in a network of brain areas associated with self-referential processing.
