Author Biography

David M. Kaplan is a researcher in the Department of Cognitive Science and an Associate Investigator of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD) at Macquarie University. After completing his PhD at Duke University (2007), he was a James S. McDonnell postdoctoral fellow in the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology (PNP) Program at Washington University in St. Louis (2007-2009). He completed additional postdoctoral training in neurophysiology in the lab of Dr Lawrence Snyder at Washington University in St. Louis - School of Medicine (2009-2013). His research is organized into two interrelated streams. One research stream falls within the field of sensorimotor neuroscience and addresses the neural mechanisms and computations underlying motor planning and learning. The other stream addresses foundational methodological and explanatory issues in neuroscience and cognitive science.
