Research interests

  • Cognitive Neuroscience of attention in both normal human volunteers and patient populations during visual and auditory stimulation
  • Behavioral and neurological measures of cognitive decline associated with cancer treatment (i.e., chemotherapy, aromatase inhibitors)
  • Human psychophysics and computational modeling of perceptual phenomena)
  • Brain network dynamics of cognitive control using functional/structural neuroimaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation
