Research

Coordinated rhythmic neuronal activity is an operational facet of the nervous system that may underlie such basic psychological processes such as perception, attention, and memory. Our lab studies the neurophysiological mechanisms and the role of such activity in medial temporal lobe memory regions of the brain. Our research is relevant to the encoding, consolidation and recall of information taking place in this area and is also relevant to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Epilepsy.
