I am an Adjunct Professor of Research in the Schulich Medical School's Department of Physiology and Pharmacology and a member of the Brain and Mind Institute at Western University
Research in non-human animals is starting to zero in on the core computations and neurobiological basis of selective attention. My program of research translates these findings to humans along two primary objectives. The first objective is to advance a model of attention that links population neuronal coding to cognitive function. The second is to understand how diseases that affect the neurobiological basis of attention—particularly its neurochemical drivers—alter population neuronal coding and normal cognitive function.
