- Title Professor, Psychological and Brain Sciences
Research in my laboratory focuses on mapping the human brain using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Our primary goal is to study out how the normal brain encodes, stores, and subsequently recognizes visual, spatial, and verbal information. In addition to studies of normal short-term and long-term memory processes, we use behavioral testing and fMRI to study normal aging, Alzheimer’s disease, and HIV-related dementia. Graduate students within the Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory carry out their research within the psychology department at Boston University and also at the Massachusetts General Hospital NMR center.
