Research and Teaching Interests
My research interests include visual attention and working memory, both the traditional cognitive/experimental and cognitive neuroscience approaches. Recently, in my laboratory, we have been investigating relationships between working memory and attention; for example, how various types of working memory load and contents affect the way we perform attention tasks.
I also have another project in cognitive neuroscience. In collaboration with Dr. Osaka of the Kyoto University, Japan, we have been examining relationships between the Default Mode Network and Working Memory Network using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
