Director, Laboratory of Neuroimaging, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Research Interests:

Current research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of brain circuits underlying cognitive functions, such as attention and emotion, in normal and patient populations by employing behavioral, developmental, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), event related potentials (ERP), computational modeling, and genetics methods.
