Research Description

I study mechanisms relating cognitive, emotional, and physiological aspects of normal human behavior and psychopathology using psychophysiological methods, emphasizing MRI, EEG, MEG, and EKG. Interests include executive function, emotional dysregulation, and sensory processes. I continue collaborating with UIUC faculty but am now Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology at UCLA.

Building Remodeling Projects

Click on the title to check out these pictures from the classroom remodeling project in the basement. A second project to replace the elevators will begin in September. Beginning with the freight elevator, each elevator will be out of service for three months. To get quickly from one floor to another, and improve your fitness, we will encourage the use of the stairs. The repainting of the northeast stairwell has been completed, and the painter is starting on the southwest stairwell.
