brain networks

We are a research group at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, IL.

We study the brain dynamics underlying memory and cognitive control across the human lifespan, from neurons to large-scale networks.

Research combines methods from cognitive psychology and human neuroscience, including invasive and noninvasive electrophysiology, electrical stimulation, eye tracking, and structural neuroimaging.

Outcomes of our research advance basic science and translate to better quality of life.
