Performance & response monitoring in the medial frontal cortex

I started in Schall lab August 2017, working with Amir Sajad looking at how the supplementary eye field and anterior cingulate cortex of macaque monkeys monitors responses and performance. We do this by examining the electrophysiology of these areas during a countermanding task.

Prior to this, I have had several research positions and internships covering visual and affective neuroscience in healthy and clinical populations.
