I have extensive training and expertise in Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Electroencephalography (EEG), Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), computer applications and image analysis. My research expands over many areas from understanding of the complex relationships between social information processing, social interaction, and social competence as well as the aberrant connectivity that underlies social dysfunction in autism. I have completed studies in functional neuroimaging the fundamentals of language and memory processing in normal subjects compared to subjects with learning disorders. I have localized brain regions that facilitate the control of attention and other higher executive processes in subjects with ADHD and normal controls. Other areas of research have included understanding executive processes in subjects with corpus callosum agenesis and understanding the mechanisms underlying sensory inhibition (gating), i.e., the ability of the CNS to inhibit or modulate its sensitivity to incoming irrelevant sensory input. I have also performed MEG studies that have increased our understanding of the neural mechanisms of driver distractions during cell phone conversations in a simulated driving environment. I have completed several studies on the underlying mechanisms of migraine and the neurological effects of medical treatments. I have helped to develop MEG neuroimaging methods to determine locations of epileptogenic areas suitable for resection. I currently use MEG to localize the cortical areas involved in tinnitus generation, as well as differentiate the subtypes of schizophrenia.

I sincerely apologize that we have a long-standing and unresolved problem that users are unable to modify the database contents using their logins and passwords. I hope that we can fix this problem soon. In the meantime, I will try to do this manually as best I can.
