Dr. Martin earned his BA and MA in psychology from New Mexico State University. Between these degrees he worked as a psychological technician at an inpatient psychiatric hospital and as a domestic violence counselor in Las Cruces, NM. He then moved to the University of New Mexico to earn a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, which he received in 2005. From 2006-2009 he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Rochester. His research broadly seeks to map out the relationships among brain states, thought, and behavior, and to apply insights gained from that work to develop and test rehabilitation strategies for brain damaged individuals. The specific content areas where this work has thus far been performed include dynamic attention and motion perception, with the application to visual loss following stroke. The methods used include functional brain imaging (i.e., magnetoencephalography and functional MRI), structural brain imaging (MRI), and behavioral measures including eye tracking and response latency and accuracy. Dr. Martin has several other research interests, including gaze control and determinants of outcome in psychotherapy. Dr. Martin has published in several journals, including Brain, Neuropsychologia, Perception and Psychophysics, Human Brain Mapping, NeuroImage, Vision Research, Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, Topics in Cognitive Science, and the International Journal of Psychophysiology.
