Areas of Interest

We seek to uncover cognitive control's psychological and neural architecture in its various forms. This includes basic research covering working memory issues, distraction, attentional mechanisms, and cognitive training. It also incorporates translational research that applies basic knowledge to essential issues such as difficulty with self-control, ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder, and aging. Research techniques include behavioral testing, functional neuroimaging using fMRI, and electrical stimulation techniques (e.g., transcranial direct current stimulation).
