The Effects of Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex Damage on Interpersonal Coordination in Social Interaction


Social interaction is an essential and integral component of human lives. I am interested in understanding the areas of the brain involved in social interaction and collaboration. To do this, we study the performance of patients with selective focal brain lesions on a variety of social tasks. I am also interested in the neural basis of disorders where social interaction is impaired, like autism.
