Neural mechanisms of human memory

Research Description

Research in my lab is aimed at understanding how we use both top-down and bottom-up processes to encode and retrieve memories. We use a combination of recording techniques including scalp electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging to characterize the neural mechanisms that give rise to successful memory. Our current work is focused on investigating the spatiotemporal dynamics of the global brain states and organizational strategies that underlie the ability to successfully encode and retrieve memories.
