  • About

    Research in my laboratory investigates the neural and cognitive mechanisms of attention, working memory and executive control. Using a combination of behavioral and neuroimaging studies we investigate such questions as:

    • Do the hemispheres makes different contributions to attention and working memory?
    • What is the effect of aging on attention and working memory?
    • What strategies and training can be used to promote efficient performance?
    • How do emotion and cognition interact?
