I am interested in the role that contextual or environmental cues play in the   control of both goal-directed and reflexive behaviours. The contextual control   of behaviour has been implicated in a wide variety of situations from drug   addiction to the formation of episodic memories. My focus is on the neural and   psychological mechanisms underlying the contextual modulation of behaviour, with   particular emphasis on the involvement of the prefrontal cortex and hippocampal   formation. In addition, I am also interested in how dysfunction to contextual   processes may contribute to neuropsychological disorders such as   schizophrenia.
