We study neural circuits in humans and nonhuman animal models to understand action planning,
learning, and high-level cognition, to place neurological and psychiatric dysfunction into these mechanistic contexts, and to design improved methods of neurophysiological biomarker detection and more effective forms of brain modulation.
The lab is situated across the departments of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience. Facilities are
located both at Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital. We are grateful for the generous support of the Brown University Carney Institute for Brain Science, the Lifespan Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute, the Brown University Departments of Neuroscience & Neurosurgery, and the Brown University Alpert Medical School.
Our work has been made possible through the support of our
patients, the significant contributions of our collaborators, and generous funding from these agencies and foundations:
A McDonnell-Pew grant from the J.S. McDonnell Foundation
The Roddy Holden Foundation
