Jamal Williams is a Ph.D. candidate in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute currently being advised by Kenneth Norman, Uri Hasson, and Elizabeth Margulis. Jamal uses neuroimaging and computational modeling to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying naturalistic stimulus perception with a particular emphasis on music and film. Jamal received his B.A. in Psychology from the University of Memphis where he used artificial intelligence, computational modeling, and music to understand patterns of learning in humans. Jamal plans to eventually extend his research to different sub-populations such as infants and across cultures, to better understand how music-related memory for real-world events develops within and across brains.
