Biography

My research focuses on the understanding the cognitive and neural operations that contribute to conscious and non-conscious attention, learning, memory in the human brain.

The main approach has been to examine brain activity during learning, how patterns of activity are associated with successful memory formation, and how newly acquired knowledge governs memory-guided behaviour with and without visual awareness.

I use a variety of methodologies to investigate these questions: behavioural techniques that involve examining the relationship between accuracy and metacognition, neuropsychology, functional and anatomical magnetic resonance imaging (high- and ultra-high field MRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation and lesion studies.

Short Description

Anterograde and retrograde memory in health and hippocampal amnesia

- High-field (3-Tesla) and ultra-high (7-Tesla) field MR anatomical and functional neuroimaging

One line of research that I am currently investigating is based on the perspective that selective and/or different degrees of atrophy at the level of human hippocampal subfields is a powerful unit of analysis that is differentially correlated with behavioural function and dysfunction in individuals with organic hippocampal amnesia.
