Current Research and Scholarly Interests
I am interested in typical and atypical neurodevelopment of human learning and memory, and interaction with stress and emotion. Using a multi-disciplinary approach (integrating cognitive neuroimaging, psychophysiology and genetics), I investigate into how the brain, particularly the medial temporal and prefrontal networks, support learning and memory? How are these memory-related brain systems modulated by emotion and stress? How do these systems operate in individuals with mental disorders?
