Research Interests

Our lab exploits the unique opportunities provided by intracranial electrical recordings during neurosurgical procedures. Using single-neuron recording from epileptic patients implanted with depth electrodes, we investigate neural mechanisms of saliency, attention, and face processing. We also combine multimodal neuroscience approaches, including functional neuroimaging, intracranial and scalp EEG, and computational modeling, as well as study neurological populations such as amygdala lesion patients and people with autism.

Research Topics:
  • Investigating the neural basis for goal-directed visual search
  • Investigating the neural basis for saliency and memory using natural scene stimuli
  • Investigating the neural basis for face processing using computational face models
  • Investigating the psychological and neural bases underlying altered saliency representation in autism
