Neurophysiological human cognition using in vivo neuroimaging techniques, e.g. functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, and its relations to other biological systems. Areas of interest in neuroimaging include - visuo-spatial task performance, motor learning, working memory, and continuous task performance. Recent work involves the use of pharmacological manipulations as probes of cognitive and physiological networks during fMRI. Mathematical applications and engineering solutions for neuroimaging.
Neuroinformatics: mathematical modeling, experimental design, statistical, quantitative methods, data visualization, and the sociological and technical issues of neuroscientific data sharing. Neuroimaging data base and data mining.
Presently: application of communications and information theory to analysis of functional connectivity.
