About Marcel Adam Just

Marcel Adam Just, the D.O. Hebb Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Carnegie Mellon and Director of its Center for Cognitive Brain Imaging, is a researcher and scientific contributor in a broad set of areas of neuroscience. His research uses brain imaging (fMRI) in high-level cognitive tasks to study the neural basis of the architecture of human thought. The fMRI studies attempt to determine the underlying cortical components of the cognitive system and the nature of the collaboration among them in many different types of tasks. The individual projects investigate high level thinking in tasks like sentence comprehension, mental rotation, imagery, object recognition, problem-solving, and decision-making. The projects examine normal cognitive functioning in college students and in adolescents, as well as in special populations, such as patients with autism and children with dyslexia.
