Examination of invariant properties of human perception and information processing across visual, auditory and tactile modalities, with an emphasis on the underlying neural mechanisms. Studies include work on pattern recognition in speech perception and on the role of attention and feedback mechanisms. The lab also is working on micro-processor based assistive technologies for individuals with developmental and acquired disabilities which limit mobility and speech.

“The neuroscience program at the university has a unique blend of cognitive and molecular neuroscience that appeals to my own diverse interests for studying the brain. Most other programs place emphasis on one side or the other of these two broad disciplines.”
