Me and my work
I’m a neurologist and cognitive neuroscientist. My group’s research focuses on trying to understand deficits of attention, memory, motivation and decision-making.
I work with healthy people and patients with brain disorders, in the University and the hospital. I’ll discuss results with my group members, spend time writing up papers and communicate our findings to students and the public.
