Neuropsychology of mood disorders and schizophrenia
My research interests involve investigation of cognitive and other neurobehavioral impairments in mental disorders including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Specific areas of inquiry include the study of deficits in executive, memory, and self-regulatory or metacognitive functions in these disorders, as well as their underlying neural substrates.
