Research Interests: My lab’s focus is on the neural correlates of perception, cognition, and other psychological functions in aging and age-related neurodegenerative disease.  We use behavioral methods, including visual psychophysics, neuropsychological assessment, sensory/cognitive neuroscience, and also neuroimaging.  A current emphasis is on the non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD) (perception, cognition, mood) and their interaction with motor symptoms, with an emphasis on motor subtypes (e.g., body side of PD onset, type of symptom at onset).  We do basic research and we work to develop interventions to enhance quality of life.   I also have a long-standing interest in perception and cognition in Alzheimer’s disease (AD).  Our lab’s research is/has been supported, with our gratitude, by the National Institute of Health, the American Parkinson’s Disease Association, the Boston University Digital Health Initiative, the Boston University Institute for Health System Innovation and Policy, and the Boston University Alzheimer Disease Center.  We also acknowledge the Boston University Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Office, Affinity Research Collaborative (ARC).
