Research Interests

I study language and memory in adults, mainly from the perspective of the patterns of disruption to these cognitive functions that occur as a result of brain damage or disease. Linking both the location of structural/functional lesions in the patients and patterns of activation in normal adults (from PET/fMRI) to specific aspects of memory and language provides and tests hypotheses on function/structure correlations.
