Research Interests

My research interests focus on cortical and basal ganglia mechanisms of nociception and pain. Additional interests include how the cerebral cortex and basal ganglia process information from multiple sensory systems (multisensory integration). An understanding of how these areas process sensory information may shed light on how the nervous system responds to environmental cues and how organisms make use of these cues to make appropriate behavioral responses. Moreover, this line of research may lead to data concerning the etiology of Parkinson's Disease, and provide information leading to potential treatments for this debilitating disorder.
