Thalamo-cortical interactions

Research Summary

My group is interested in understanding how the medial thalamus and interconnected cortical regions (cortico-thalamo-cortical connections) contribute to cognitive processes. In particular, we use cognitive and behavioural neuroscience techniques to advance our understanding about how the connections between the mediodorsal thalamus and the frontal lobes are important to support learning new information, memory and decision-making.
