Dr. Luck's research focuses on the neural and cognitive mechanisms of attention and working memory in healthy young adults and dysfunctions of attention and working memory in psychiatric and neurological disorders. He also works to develop and promote ERP methods, including a yearly 10-day NIH-funded summer workshop (the ERP Boot Camp) and an open-source Matlab toolbox (ERPLAB Toolbox).

Video describing live-online hybrid version of PSC100Y Introduction to Cognitive Psychology
This video provides a brief overview of a course that uses a new approach to college teaching, in which the lectures are delivered as a series of 5-minute YouTube videos, giving the instructor time to have weekly small-group discussion meetings with the students. This leads to both enhanced learning and greater student satisfaction.
