Dynamics of memory encoding and retrieval networks in the brain
We are investigating the interplay of the core memory network and other large-scale networks in the brain during the encoding and retrieval processes in typical human development, using multimodal brain imaging and computational methods.
Development of memory and social cognition in autism
We are investigating the neurodevelopment of memory deficits in children with autism, and the link between memory deficits and social cognition impairment.
Contribution of genetic and experience factors to brain organization
The brain is an intermediate phenotype that mediates the effects of genes on behavior. We are investigating how different childhood experiences and genetic factors contribute to brain organization, during a developmental period that is critical for the emergence of psychiatric disorders.
