research overview

  • My primary research interests are in the electrophysiology and neurophysiology of sensory systems, as well as the neural mechanisms controlling brain excitability, particularly as it applies to the treatment of human epilepsy. I am currently working on four research projects. The first examines the cellular basis and functional significance of fast electrical oscillations in the sensory cortex. The second is concerned with areas of cerebral cortex uniquely dedicated to combining information from different sensory modalities. The third project is examining the role innate immune responses to traumatic brain injury may play in post-traumatic epilepsy and anxiety disorders. Finally, I am examining regions of the cerebral cortex that are involved in the perception of pain.

selected publications


courses taught

  • NRSC 4011 - Senior Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Senior Thesis credits are available for students during the semester that they write and defend a departmental Honors Thesis. A neuroscience honors thesis must be based on an empirical research project that the student directs/participates in under guidance from a faculty member. Contact the neuroscience director for further information.
  • NRSC 4042 - Systems Neuroscience
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Explores the neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and function of human sensory systems, motor systems, sensorimotor integration and higher level neurosystem function. Credit not granted for PSYC/NRSC 4052 and NRSC 4042.
  • PSYC 4011 - Senior Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Critically reviews some aspect of psychological literature, scholarly analysis of a major psychological issue, and/or empirical research project. See the psychology honors director for further information.
