My work aims to better understand the neural basis of response inhibition and how this can relate to higher order decision making. I am currently exploring the efficacy of various cognitive control training methods aimed at discouraging unhealthy food choices in favour of healthier alternatives. I incorporate both brain imaging and brain stimulation techniques to inform how such training may be adaptive at the neural level.
