How does the brain perceive time and space?  Philosophers may debate the nature of each, but my lab aims to empirically study how the brain constructs these dimensions.  To do this, my lab uses a variety of different tools in the armamentarium of Cognitive Neuroscience: functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Electroencephalography (EEG), and Psychophysics.  Additionally, my lab focuses on combining different techniques, such as simultaneous TMS-EEG or fMRI-EEG, to enhance their power and the repertoire of questions that can be asked. 

Even more exciting: we are not just interested in time and space alone, but what they are used for.  For time, a major use of interest is the perception of rhythm and music.  For space, we are interested in how this dimension is used for navigation and processing value.

My lab is currently looking for new students, please email me if you are interested.
