Research Interests:

We study the organization of the normal human cerebral cortex and its changes after neurological injury. Current projects in healthy individuals and those with stroke focus on language and motor function. Language studies in healthy adults address the neural mechanisms of language use in an ecological (real-world) setting. The work on hand motor function delves into the neurobiological underpinnings of expert skill. We also study the role of observation and imitation in skill acquisition. In the study of stroke, the emphasis is on the cognitive, motor, and affective factors that influence recovery.
