My research investigates the neural basis of emotion and attention. I am particularly focused on emotion-cognition relationships that are associated with individual differences in anxiety and depression. My recent research has examined the roles of the left and right cerebral hemispheres in emotional function; how information is communicated between the two sides of the brain; and neural processes that implement self-regulatory functions, such as regulating emotions and controlling on-line adjustments in cognitive performance. I rely upon both cognitive and psychophysiological (EEG/ERP) methods to address these questions.
