PCNGis an interdisciplinary research group engaged in a wide range of studies in normal and clinical subject groups. We are also interested in theoretical and foundational issues in the study of brain and mind.

Our research interests include the following:

Mechanisms of perceptual rivalry, and visual and attentional processing during rivalry
Rivalry in clinical psychiatric groups, especially bipolar disorder
Large-scale genetic and clinical psychiatric studies of rivalry rate
Hardware and software system development for rivalry presentation and data collection
Non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, including caloric vestibular stimulation (CVS) and
transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
Brain stimulation in the treatment of persistent (chronic) pain states
Brain stimulation in the treatment of mania, depression and other psychiatric conditions
Foundational issues in the scientific study of consciousness
