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:

The National Institutes of Health

The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation

The Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation

A McDonnell-Pew grant from the J.S. McDonnell Foundation

An MGH-ECOR Tosteson Award

The Michael J. Fox Foundation

The Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute

The Roddy Holden Foundation
