Jay Sanguinetti, PhD

Research Assistant Professor, University of New Mexico

Army Research Laboratory

Jay Sanguinetti is Research Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico, Postdoctoral Fellow for Army Research Labs and the Associate Director for the Center for Consciousness Studies in Tucson, AZ. His background is in human visual neuroscience and electrophysiology which he used to study how unconscious visual processes contribute to conscious vision. Currently, he focuses on noninvasive neuromodulation, using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and focused ultrasound. In his lab at UNM, called the Noninvasive Cognitive Enhancement Lab or NICE lab - he uses these methods to enhance perceptual and cognitive performance and to study mindfulness meditation. Jay has been at the forefront of the emerging field of ultrasonic neuromodulation, conducting one of the first human experiments using focused ultrasound, which he will talk about today.
