Professional Interests

I am a neurologist with fellowship training in both cognitive disorders and in epilepsy. My research interests involve the use of intracranial EEG and electrical brain stimulation to modulate behavior, especially modulation of emotional states. I am interested in application of stereotactic EEG in humans to target treatments for cognitive and psychiatric disorders.

Rotations and Thesis Projects

The student will be exposed to development of novel psychometric tasks, recording of intracranial EEG signal in humans, and utilizing electrical brain stimulation to modulate behavior.
