Biography

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. 

Interests

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