Brain Mechanisms of Attention Control

Brain Mechanisms of Attention Control

I am currently conducting a large-sample (N = 200+) fMRI study to investigate the brain mechanisms underlying differences in the ability to control attention.

Attention Control and Cognition

Attention Control and Cognition

I explore this aspect of attention control by studying how people differ on their ability to control attention and how that predicts other cognitive and perceptual abilities.
