Research Spotlight

My work focuses on understanding patterns of neural activity that predict a person’s ability to reason or estimate probabilities. My recent work focuses on frontal midline theta and fronto-parietal theta coherence. Both are patterns of neural activity that have been recently implicated as general mechanisms for cognitive control, making them likely neural correlates of individual differences in judgment and reasoning.
