Description of Interests

My laboratory uses human neuroscience methods (fMRI, EEG, TMS, eye tracking) to investigate mechanisms of learning and memory and their impairment in neurologic and neuropsychiatric disorders. We also use noninvasive stimulation methods to modulate distributed networks of the human hippocampus in order to test their roles in memory and to develop novel treatments for memory impairment.

Interests (Keywords)

Aging; Cognitive Neuroscience; Neurology; Neuropsychology; Neuroscience; Psychology
