Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, her research is focused on examining the activity of the fronto-striatal network during outcome processing and the role these regions play in depression and fatigue. Her findings indicate that noninvasive, nonpharmacologic interventions may be useful for addressing deficits in learning processes, and in ameliorating the impact of debilitating cognitive fatigue.
