Research

Our laboratory studies neural mechanisms of perception, attention and memory, with an emphasis on the impact of distraction and multitasking on these abilities. Our unique research approach utilizes a powerful combination of human neurophysiological tools, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and transcranial direction current stimulation (tDCS). A major focus of our research has been to expand our understanding of alterations in the aging brain that lead to cognitive decline. Our most recent studies explore how we may enhance our cognitive abilities, and/or prevent them from declining, via engagement with target-designed video games, neurofeedback, and electrical neuromodulation.
