My work is focused on the cognitive and behavioral functions of the basal ganglia. I have clinical and research expertise on cognitive (attention and executive functions) and behavioral (apathy, anxiety, impulse control disorders) dysfunctions related to Parkinson's disease and other basal ganglia disorders.
