Research Summary

We use modern, non-invasive neuroimaging techniques suchas functional magnetic resonance imaging and electro- andmagnetoencephalography to explore the neural mechanismsunderlying higher cognitive functions in humans. Ourmain areas of research involve cognitive functions suchas language, working memory, decision making, and goaldirected behavior. In addition, we are particularly interestedin specifying the neural mechanisms underlying individualdifferences in these cognitive functions.
