Reasearcher Bio
I study the function of the hippocampus in autobiographic memory retrieval and verbal learning. Typically, I use fMRI to investigate research questions, although I am also involved in a number of behavioural studies. While much of my work so far has focused on work with normal controls, I am currently extending my paradigms to depressed and schizophrenic populations.

If resources were not limited, what research projects would you pursue?
Study of very large samples using fMRI (paradigms testing memory and verbal learning in groups on schitzophrenics versus normal controls).
