Gregory McCarthy

PsychologyOur research program is concerned with the functional organization of the human brain. We seek to identify and characterize functional brain processes, and to determine how these processes are evident in psychological phenomena. We are also interested in how these functional brain processes and their anatomical substrates are altered in pathological states. A current and enduring theme of our research is social perception and cognition. We have been particularly interested in the manner in which information about the surface features of animate entities (such as faces and bodies) and information about motion trajectories contribute to inferences about the goals and intentions of social agents. With respect to the brain, these studies have focused on two regions: 1) ventral occipitotemporal cortex, an area generally associated with the perception of visual categories including faces and bodies, and 2) lateral occipitotemporal cortex, and area associated with biological motion. Another research theme is the neuroscience of executive processing and working memory. We are interested in the way that task-irrelevant stressors influence functional connectivity between the amygdala, inferior frontal gyrus, and ventromedial prefrontal cortex when subjects are engaged in demanding primary tasks such as working memory or maze finding. Our methods include neuroimaging (functional and structural MRI, and diffusion tensor imaging), EEG and ERP from scalp recordings in healthy volunteers, intracranial EEG recording and direct cortical stimulation in patients, eye tracking, and behavioral measures.Email Gregory McCarthy

James Meehan

Computer Science

James Meehan studied math & music theory as a Yale undergraduate [BS ‘71] and stayed at Yale to enter the charter class of grad students in Computer Science [PhD ‘76]. He taught Computer Science at UC Irvine for 6 years, then returned to New Haven to work for an AI startup. In 1990, he worked at a research lab in Palo Alto, on a project with Oxford University Press to create a new dictionary whose definitions were based on actual word-usage as seen in documents on the Web. He later went to Adobe and helped to define, implement, and document PDF and Acrobat. He then moved to Google, in the Internationalization Engineering group, which enables Google software to work with every language and every alphabet on the planet. He retired from Google in May 2018.

Apart from computers, Jim is a fan of classical music. He studied piano and organ and was the organist for the Yale Symphony as an undergraduate and a graduate student. He returned to Yale in 2016 as organist for the 50th Anniversary celebration of the YSO in New Haven and at Carnegie Hall. As a student, he also sang with the Yale Bach Society, the Glee Club, and many other groups. He lives in San Francisco, where he says there is more music per square foot than anywhere else in the world except New Haven. He serves on the boards of organizations for Baroque music and opera training.
