Current Research

I am interested in retrieval-encoding interactions, and the brain networks that support memory formation and modification. I use a variety of cognitive neuroscience methods to investigate memory, including fMRI, scalp EEG, intracranial EEG, TMS, and eye-tracking. My current research focus is on linking hippocampal oscillatory components to eye movements during memory formation, modification, and exploration. We are obtaining direct neural recordings from the hippocampus of human patients suffering from refractory epilepsy, to tightly link hippocampal activity with specific memory processes.
