About Me: My research interests lie in the area of social cognitive neuroscience - I try to understand social phenomena in terms of interactions between the social (social cues, contexts, experiences, and behaviors), cognitive (mental information processing mechanisms), and neural (brain bases) levels of analysis. I do so by applying behavioral, electrophysiological, pharmacological and neuroimaging research techniques in both healthy and clinical populations. As part of the Knight Lab, I use EEG, dual EEG and ECoG to study the mechanisms involved in social interactions, in the intact and damaged human brain.
