The research we conduct seeks to explain human brain functioning and its relation to cognition, primarily with the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This has been evolving rapidly, and our work has taken advantage of many new developments. We began with fMRI research that characterized the processing of specific, circumscribed brain regions, such as some of the regions centrally involved in language processing. Because it was clear from the onset that no one brain region worked alone, our work broadened to encompass the functioning of large-scale networks of brain regions in various types of thinking tasks. More recently, we have included the use of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to examine neurochemistry to help understand brain functioning in both healthy and clinical populations. As a result of this advancing analytic and technological infrastructure as well as my collaborations across campus, the research questions we address are broad. We love science, particularly cognitive neuroscience.
