Youssef Ezzyat

Youssef Ezzyat is a cognitive neuroscientist who studies the neural basis of memory organization. His research focuses on how the brain uses and responds to structure in our environments to organize memories, and how this influences memory retention and forgetting. He also conducts research applying what we learn about memory to develop interventions that support learning. His research combines behavioral testing, neural recording and stimulation methods, and computational and statistical modeling.

Dr. Ezzyat received his B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University, Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from New York University, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. Before coming to Wesleyan he taught at Swarthmore College.
