Alex L. White
Bio Alex is a cognitive neuroscientist interested in visual perception, attention, and reading. He studies those topics with a combination of psychophysics, eye-tracking, fMRI, and computational modeling. He recently discovered that skilled readers can?t recognize two words simultaneously, due to a processing bottleneck in a specific part of the brain?s reading circuitry (White, Palmer, Boynton & Yeatman, PNAS 2019). As a postdoc at Stanford, Alex is studying that part of the brain in more detail, with the goal to explain individual differences in reading ability.

Professor of Molecular Pharmacology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We analyze the mechanisms by which mammalian cells adapt to environmental changes, such as exposure to foreign chemicals, hypoxia, or hormones, by altering the transcription of specific sets of genes. We use both biohchemical and genetic approaches and many techniques in molecular and cellular biology. See: http://www.stanford.edu/group/whitlock/
Professor (Teaching) of Surgery (Anatomy)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The development of better regimes for teaching Anatomy using Cadavers.
Alice S Whittemore
Professor of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology) and of Biomedical Data Science, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cancers of the prostate, breast and ovary account for a major proportion of new cancer cases and cancer deaths in the U.S. each year. Our recent research focus has been on developing improved statistical methods for the design and conduct of studies involving hereditary predisposition and modifiable lifestyle characteristics in the etiologies of site-specific cancers.
