Research Summary

Our research focuses on combining psychophysics, neural imaging, and computation to understand how brain works at the systems level. In particular, we are interested in the neural processes of cognitive control and how deficits in these processes may contribute to the pathogenesis of substance use disorders and other psychiatric conditions. Our research also focuses on the neurochemical basis of cognition. We employ phamacological manipulation and resting state as well task-based brain imaging to examine the catecholaminergic circuits of importance to neuropsychiatric conditions.
