research interests

Brain Image

I'm broadly interested in brain-behavior relationships in cognitive neuroscience. I've used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) to investigate the cognitive nature of human behavior both in healthy individuals and patients with neurological, psychiatric, and developmental disorders. I'm also interested in analytical tools for structural MRI such as voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).

In my main line of research, I study the neural mechanisms underlying deception using functional neuroimaging methods. My second line of research focuses on understanding the neural origins of memory errors, which is a related though distinct process of deception.
