Research:

My research investigates the temporal dynamics of neural processes underlying cognitive control and prospective memory using event-related brain potentials(ERPs). In addition to basic research in these areas, I am also interesting in the utility of ERPs in understand the effects of normal aging and psychopathology on goal-directed action.
