Research Interest
The cognitive and neural bases of short-term and working memory, attention, and consciousness. Methods that we use include behavioral studies, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), repetitive TMS, electroencephalography (EEG), and combinations of these. Multivariate analysis methods are increasingly important for our work.
