Major Research Theme
Our lab focuses on state-dependent aspects of cognition.  Primarily, this involves studies of the role of sleep and dreaming in sleep-dependent offline memory processing.  Human behavioral, psychophysiological, and brain imaging studies help us determine the role of sleep and dreams in a range of memory and emotional processes, in both healthy individuals and those with psychatric and neurological disorders..
