 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Current research studies the unique contributions of cerebral and subcortical brain regions to functional activity in connected brain structures, and the link between neural activity in discrete cortical regions and specific behaviors. Further research is directed at understanding the capacity of the brain to undergo adaptive or maladaptive change following injury or reversible deactivation of cerebral cortical areas.
