Focus of Work


My primary interest is in understanding the functions of the human prefrontal cortex and improving those functions after brain damage. Thus, I have additional interests in neuroplasticity, memory, executive functions, and social neuroscience. I use structural and functional MRI, non-invasive brain stimulation, psychophysiological recordings, and genetics as tools in this research effort.
