The questions that motivate our research all revolve around visual cognition and mostly around visual memory. Specifically, we are interested in how do we maintain visual information that is no longer present? How does the brain represent visual memories across eye movements and over time? What are the neural mechanisms underlying forgetting in healthy people and patients with brain disorders?
We are engaged in investigating these topics using various research methods including neuroimaging and behavioral experiments, in healthy individuals and patients with neurological disorders. We also develop a new computational framework designed to capture novel, key aspects of visual memory.
