Dr. Richard Aslin is a professor at the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Rochester and Director of the Rochester Center for Brain Imaging.

His main research interest focuses on processes of rapid statistical (or implicit) learning by human infants, children, and adults and the neural mechanisms that underlie these processes. In particular, Dr. Aslin and his team have explored the question of how human infants gather information about the world without the benefit of an extensive base of knowledge that adults automatically bring to bear on perceptual, motor, cognitive, and language tasks.
