My current research interest focuses on what we can learn about brain-behavior relationships using brain imaging (fMRI) technology. A second interest involves exploring parallels in the processing of spoken and written language and, in turn, the extent that any parallels indicate that spoken and written language share common phonological, orthographic, and semantic information.
