  • Sleep-dependent memory consolidation in patients with bipolar disorder
  • The topography of sleep spindles and slow waves
  • The timing of sleep spindles in relation to slow waves
  • Neural network models of sleep-dependent memory consolidation
  • The disparate and overlapping impacts of sleep loss, recovery sleep, and circadian rhythms on the perception, consolidation, and retention of emotional and neutral information
  • How chronic sleep loss affects the neural and behavioral signatures of emotion regulation in healthy individuals and patients with insomnia. (funded by NIMH K23)
