Cognitive neuroscience of response control

We study the control of (inappropriate) response tendencies. This is like the situation in which you have a tendency to respond even when you have a goal to abstain. We leverage cognitive psychology to design behavioral paradigms that try to mimic response control in more naturalistic settings. And we study the underlying brain systems using various imaging and stimulation methods in healthy volunteers as well as neurological patients.
