Our interests in human memory and cognition encompass the coginitive and neural bases of working memory, attention, control, intelligence, and nondeclarative memory. The methods that we use include behavioral studies, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), simultaneous rTMS and EEG, and simultaneous TMS and fMRI.
