My research is focused on understanding the brain-based markers of attention control and performance monitoring. I am particularly interested in how the medial frontal cortex mediates attention control and incorporates feedback in the pursuit of optimal outcomes (e.g., achieving correct responses, avoiding negative consequences) and how these processes change across development and vary across individuals. The links between neural dynamics, attention control, and feedback processing have important implications for understanding the neural circuitry of goal-directed behaviour in normative development as well as the maintenance of pathological states such as anxiety. I often integrate behavioural and imaging techniques, targeted experimental paradigms, and computational tools to study markers of attention control and performance monitoring.
This research has been supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Transforming Autism Care Consortium (TACC), the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, and the Brain Canada Foundation.
