I am interested in the neural mechanisms that enable cognitive functions and contribute to individual differences in cognitive abilities. The assessment of brain function associated with stimulus/event categorization and resource allocation during working memory and attention are a particular focus. Examining mechanisms of plasticity and dysfunction of these cognitive abilities is currently a major pursuit. Many of the present projects I am involved in are aimed at understanding how brain structure and function are altered in clinical populations that compromise these cognitive abilities.
