Our research focuses on how the brain supports our ability to remember. Using a combination of behavioral and brain imaging techniques, our research explores how we form new memories, how we remember past experiences, and how our memory for the past influences what we learn in the present.

In particular, we use high-resolution functional neuroimaging techniques to explore the unique contributions of medial temporal lobe structures to memory function and how these regions interact with brain regions involved in perception, attention, emotion, and motivation.

We are also interested in how changes in brain structure and function throughout childhood and adolescence relate to the development of memory and reasoning abilities during this time period.
