Research interests

My research interest is in non-pharmacological approaches to enhancement of memory, learning, and decision making in order to refine and improve the effects, as well as the methods. I use a wide variety of methods (e.g., physical exercise, electrical and magnetic brain stimulation and sleep), and different imaging methods (e.g., eyetracking and EEG).
