Research areas

I am interested in cognitive and neural bases of episodic memory judgments. I use cognitive experimental and quantitative data methods as well as fMRI and fcMRI to investigate the way in which we make decisions about our memories. Research themes include sensations of memory (e.g. déjà vu, déjà vécu), memory-expectation conflict (i.e. how we respond to discrepancies between memory and expectation), and the interaction between functional connectivity and task-evoked activation in fMRI studies of memory.
