Neuropsychological and neuroanatomical correlates of complex human behavior
My research is aimed at understanding brain-behavior relationships in humans, at systems level. Two main approaches are used:
Specific topics that I am working on currently include: retrieval of conceptual knowledge; retrieval of words and lexical knowledge; emotion and decision-making; face processing; nonconscious processing; acquired disorders of social conduct; memory; psychophysiology. My research has been continuously and fully funded for two decades. I have about a thousand square feet of laboratory space in the Department of Neurology in the University of Iowa Hospitals.
