We often forget sounds or
images we intend to remember. Kristina is interested
in how this often frustrating but ubiquitous
variability is affected by how the brain's flexible
networks are configured before a stimulus actually arrives
and during consolidation of that memory. She uses the
techniques of fMRI, EEG, and psychophysics.
As a postdoctoral fellow in Randy Buckner's Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at Harvard University, she plans to examine how the functional connectivity between regions may changes over time and how this may impact the network.
