Areas of Interest

Research in my laboratory investigates the neural and cognitive mechanisms of attention, working memory and executive control. Using a combination of behavioral and neuroimaging studies we investigate such questions as:

  • How does aging effect attention, motor control, executive control and working memory?
  • What strategies and training can be used to promote efficient performance?
  • How do emotion and cognition interact?
