Research Summary

My research interests are very generally centered around the questions of how new skills are acquired, how existing skills are expressed, and how people exert executive control during thought and behavior. We examine these questions using functional brain imaging techniques, particularly functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). I am also interested in conceptual and methodological issues surrounding the relation between cognitive and neural processes. Our research is strongly focused on translation of basic cognitive neuroscience into the clinical domain, with collaborations on studies of schizophrenia, ADHD, Tourette Syndrome, and drug addiction.
