RESEARCH THEMES

The majority of our research studies fall into two broad categories: 1) basic science studies designed to answer questions about behavioral and neural changes in cognitive control and emotion regulation resulting as a function of age or disease, and 2) applied studies that utilize the knowledge of the fundamental studies to then target these cognitive control and emotion regulation capacities through mind-body approaches. 

UNDERSTANDING CHANGES IN NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTIONING 

In our basic science studies, our goal is to comprehensively and rigorously characterize the nature of cognitive and affective changes we see in clinical populations. Traditional neuropsychological assessments are limited in their scope, but by combining advances in neuroimaging research with computational modeling, we aim to systematically parse the contributions of different parameters underlying the specific cognitive mechanism. Additionally, several of our studies employ graph theory metrics to identify dynamic neural connections that predict neuropsychological performance.

MIND-BODY APPROACHES FOR NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL REHABILITATION

In our intervention studies, we aim to systematically assess the efficacy of various lifestyle and mind-body approaches, in improving cognitive functioning and emotion dysregulation. Using the cognitive and neural parameters from our basic science studies as surrogate endpoints, we investigate whether mind-body interventions, like mindfulness meditation, exercise, tai chi, benefit cognitive and affective functioning.
