HOW DOES THE BRAIN CONTROL BEHAVIOR?
We are interested in understanding 'cognitive control' -- how the brain controls behavior.
Our research uses a combination of experimental and theoretical approaches to understand cognitive control and related cognitive abilities, including attention, working memory, rules, and abstract reasoning.
These abilities are disrupted in many neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders and so by understanding the underlying mechanisms, we hope to develop novel treatments for these disorders.
