Personal profile

My research in a nutshell

My research uses converging cognitive neuroscience methods to study the role of large-scale networks linking the prefrontal cortex and the limbic system in coordinating and regulating higher-level cognitive-emotional processes, with an emphasis on how inter-individual differences in the structure and function of these circuits confer resilience or vulnerability to psychopathology and late life cognitive decline.
