Project Participation

Fellow, Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group
 

Research Interests

  • EEG/fMRI brain signal variability and dynamics in relation to lifespan development, cognition, neurochemistry, network dynamics, and brain structure.
  • Multivariate methods that allow the examination of brain signal variability phenomena across multiple levels of analysis.
