RESEARCH SUMMARY 
In my research, I use biologically realistic neural network models to explore how the brain gives rise to episodic memory (i.e., the ability to recall previously experienced events, and to recognize events as having been previously experienced), and I test these models' predictions using several different methods, ranging from studies of memory performance in college students, to studies of brain-damaged patients with memory disorders, to neuroimaging studies that record brain activity during recognition and recall tests. A major focus of my research is characterizing how different subregions of the medial temporal lobes (in particular, the hippocampus and perirhinal cortex) contribute to recognition and recall, and how the contributions of these structures differ from one another. I am also interested in how accuracy and distortion in episodic memory arise from interactions between medial temporal structures and prefrontal cortex.
