Biosketch

My research uses behavioral, structural brain imaging (MRI), and functional brain imaging (fMRI) paradigms to address questions concening the cognitive and neural basis of learning and memory in humans. Research topics include the dissociation between autobiographical and semantic retrieval in remote memory (i.e. memory for specific events versus facts), comparison of emotional memory in young versus older individuals, episodic retrieval in aging, effect of divided attention on eposodic memory, and analysis of the cognitive and neural components of working memory.
