Our lab is focused on understanding how the brain represents the body. This ranges from questions such as “How do we represent where we feel touch?” to “What are the neural correlates of embodiment?” We rely heavily on evidence from cognitive neuropsychological research – experiments with brain-damaged individuals – to inform our theories. We also investigate the mind/brain in neurologically-intact individuals, along with using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
Our lab is accepting graduate students for the 2023-24 academic year. Our lab provides graduate students with a unique training experience, as you will have the opportunity to work closely with stroke sufferers to understand cognition, along with researching body representations, a topic relatively few labs study. If you are a prospective graduate student, please visit this page with information about our lab for those interested in graduate school. Then feel free to e-mail me with questions about the lab, new research projects, and available resources.
