My research investigates the role of brain regions such as the frontal, medial temporal, and parietal lobes in human memory. This work involves inter-relating cognitive hypotheses with evidence from functional neuroimaging of healthy volunteers and from examining the effects of neurological and psychiatric disorders, and normal aging, on memory abilities.
