Research & Teaching Interests

Humans cycle through “good and poor” phases of attention about four times a second. Our reactions are faster to events that happen during the good phase rather than the poor phase. In the CogNeW lab, I am leading a project to measure these attentional phases in real time and apply neural stimulation to enhance reactions and focus. Specifically, we monitor which phase attention is in using EEG brainwaves, and then stimulate the brain during the “good” phase using pulses of magnetic energy.
