Research interests

I am interested in the neural basis of numerical cognition. I study number processing decoupled from language in rhesus monkeys, using behavioral paradigms as well as single-unit electrophysiological recordings. In addition, I am developing techniques for applying transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to monkeys in order to manipulate their brain activity while they perform behavioral tasks.
