My current research project is utilizing Granger Causality Analysis and DTI Analysis to examine the effects of Video Game playing on Functional Connectivity for Decision Making Tasks. By comparing Video Gamers to Non-Video Gamers on a basic decision-making task I am looking to see if Video Games are beneficial to completing these tests more accurate, more quickly or both and by what mechanisms they could potentially accomplish this.
I am primary interested in topics of neurological disorders. Specifically, my main interests are in migraine, schizophrenia, and neurodegenerative disorders, however all neurological disorders interest me for future endeavors. My goal is apply new methods of imaging and analysis to these conditions to hopefully explain more fully how they work.
