The mechanisms of cognitive sequence control: Integrated studies in humans and animals
Advanced cognition requires ordering sequences of cognitive actions. I seek to understand this important but understudied capacity from single neurons to networks of brain areas. In humans, I employ functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and cognitively demanding tasks. In animals, I conduct high-density recordings in a subset of parallel tasks, and bridge these models formally using animal fMRI.
