Overview

My research focuses on the neurocognition of memory and cognitive control, for which I mainly use spectrotemporal brain imaging techniques, such as EEG and MEG. I am especially interested in cognitive and memory enhancement - for example, via motivational states and neurofeedback training - and the individual differences thereof, which I explore with DTI and resting-state fMRI.
