Biography

In our laboratory, we study the cognitive and neural mechanisms of attention as well as the potential for enhancing attention abilities through cognitive training. To gain insights from multiple perspectives, we perform behavioral, neuroimaging (functional MRI), brain stimulation (TMS, tCS) and cognitive training experiments in healthy subjects and disordered populations (i.e., hemispatial neglect, TBI/PTSD, prosopagnosia).
