Networks, behavior and plasticity in the human brain

Integration is the hallmark of cognition. This is true both at the neural, and at the behavioral level. Even the single action potential is above all the product of large-scale integration across multiple brain regions. The simplest, everyday behaviors (for instance remembering a face, or opening a door) are in actuality incredibly complex, supported by multiple cognitive domains such as perception, action, memory, learning, and social cognition. Our group studies those large-scale interactions, and how they support the network level synthesis of interdependent cognitive processes.
