Using multiple functional neuroimaging methods I am investigating the neural correlates of episodic retrieval and the control processes sub-serving it. The conducted research targets distinct aspects of the multi-faceted act of remembering the past, contributing to the building of an anatomical and temporal “blueprint” documenting the cascade of neural events that unfold during attempts to remember, as well as when such attempts are met with success or lead to memory errors.
