Research Interests

fMRI Imaging of cortical networks

The focus of my research is to use fMRI and the study of language and frontal lobe processes to develop a better understanding of cortical networks. This includes not only attempting to enhance the characterization of individual cortical regions, but also obtain a better understanding of how these regions coordinate their individual processing to perform complex cognitive functions.
