My research focuses on how cognition and emotion interact - in healthy individuals, in individuals that suffer from mood disorders, and in brain-injured individuals. Executive control over neutral and emotional materials has featured prominently in this work. Current work focuses on how affective and motivational processes are compromised in individuals with brain injury. It is our belief that a better understanding of these factors and their relationship to the management of day to day goals and executive impairments will ultimately inform rehabilitation efforts.
