Cognitive neuroscience in healthy and disordered populations, especially aging and depression; EEG, MEG, fMRI methodologies.


My research is focused on the Cognitive Neuroscience of mental processes. Particularly, we have examined the neural structures and computational algorithms that contribute to non-declarative memory, associative memory, metamemory and attention/cognitive control. These studies are approached with a range of methodological tools – lesion studies, fMRI and MEG/EEG. More recently we have begun to examine the neurobiological basis of attention control as a contributing factor to mental illness and changes as a result of sleep patterns and traumatic brain injury. This has lead to the development of therapeutic techniques that target the attention dysfunction seen in many psychological and neurological disorders.
