Sirawaj Sean Itthipuripat

Principle Investigator (PI)  


Vanderbilt University


Hi! My name is Sirawaj or Sean. I am a cognitive neuroscientist. My work involves examining brain mechanisms that support selective attention, learning, and memory in both healthy and clinical populations (e.g., schizophrenia). To solve how these cognitive functions operate in the human brain, I use combinations of neuroscience methods including EEG, fMRI, brain stimulation, psychophysics, eye-tracking, and computational models.

​I graduated from Duke University, where I worked with  Prof. Marty Woldorff and received undergraduate degrees in Neuroscience (BS) and Psychology (BS). After Duke, I went to University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and received master and doctoral degrees in Neurosciences (MS and PhD). At UCSD, I worked with      Prof. John Serences and Prof. Adam Aron. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Geoffrey Woodman and Prof. Sohee Park at Vanderbilt University, while holding an adjunct research position at King’s Mongkut University of Technology Thonburi in Thailand.
