Personal Web Page      NIH-style CV
Research Interests:
My research interests center around the interface between cognitive science and neuroscience. My present research employs non-invasive technologies to investigate neural correlates of performance and learning in the human motor system. I have recently focussed on fMRI and on near-infrared spectroscopy and imaging, as well as more limited work with EEG/ERPs. The Neural Systems Group is based at the Massachusetts General Hospital, along with the Athinoula A. Martinos Biomedical Imaging Center (formerly the MGH NMR Center).
