My main research focuses on the neural mechanisms underlying episodic memory in humans. In particular, I have been interested in how different subregions of the medial temporal lobe (MTL) contribute to successful encoding and recollection of multiple event details.To address this question, I've been using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in healthy participants along with intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) in epilepsy patients.
