Areas
My research broadly investigates the neurobiology of cognitive dysfunctions associated with neurodevelopmental/neurobehavioral disabilities. I have been specifically interested in the role of cholinergic systems in the cognitive deficits associated with ADHD. I am currently conducting acute drug challenge studies to manipulate cholinergic system function to examine nicotinic cholinergic contributions to behavioral inhibition (impulsivity), attention, reward processing and working memory in young adults with ADHD. These studies are conducted in both in laboratory and fMRI environments. Current projects include:
