I am interested in studying how the brain selects information, and how the brain recovers after injury. The first line of research is motivated by the desire to understand 'awareness' and its close partnership with attention. The second line of research is motivated by my own experience that patients with stroke improve over time, and that we do not have a clue on how the brain does it. Hopefully, these studies will provide a solid scientific foundation for novel neuro-rehabilitation strategies.
