My research interests span several topics in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience, though my primary focus is in higher level cognition. Recently, my work has predominantly focused on how we integrate multiple sources of information when making complex decisions. These decisions may involve analogical, causal, deductive, or inductive reasoning processes. To understand the mechanisms underlying these processes, I use both behavioural and functional brain imaging (e.g., ERP, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging [fMRI]) methodologies.
