Summary of Research Interests:
Overall research interest is in the cognitive and behavioral neurosciences and the relationships between behavioral and biological variables, with an emphasis on the neurophysiology of the brain as the dependent measure: study of the neurophysiology associated with cognitive processes, such as working memory and attention; information processing; intellectual abilities; learning disorders; intellectual/cognitive development; language development; psychological disorders; drug effects; and immunological reactions. This research focuses on the study of the nervous systems of both animals and humans. Electrophysiological, behavioral, neuropsychological, immunological, biochemical, and neuroimaging techniques are involved in this work. Some of the research involves the development of new techniques and paradigms in cognitive/behavioral neuroscience and applying these to clinical problems. Current clinical projects address cognitive disturbances in Multiple Sclerosis and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
