Dr. Kroll's research is directed towards the greater understanding of human memory. His memory research has included studies on visual short-term memory, mnemonic (bizarre imagery) techniques, the effects of misleading post-event information (eyewitness) visual memory, the use of contextual information to aid in the retrieval of memories "lost" to misleading post-event information, the interrelatedness of items in semantic memory, and, more recently, the neurophysiological substrates of memory encoding and retrieval processes, both by the examination of memory impaired individuals and by the measurement of the physiological correlates of memory processes through the use of neuroimaging techniques.
