Brief Bio:
In the broadest sense I am interested in answering these questions: What are the rules and principles governing the ways in which organisms operate and adapt to the environmental demands they face? What are the information and neural processes that underlie the adaptation and control of action? I have specific interest in topics relating to perception and action, motor imagery, consciousness, and movement disorders. At the undergraduate level I have taught PSY 482: Biological Basis of Behavior, PSY 370: Psychology of Learning WEB, PSY 451: Human Performance, and PSY 495: Honors Seminar.  At the graduate level, I have taught PSY 593: Brain, Mind, Action, PSY 656: Sensation and Motor Functions, and PSY 677: Foundations of Cognitive and and Behavioral Neuroscience.
