Dr. Friedman’s research interest lies in analyzing ERPs and performance measures to investigate the neurocognitive processes underlying everyday functions, such as memory encoding and retrieval and executive control. His approach bases on a lifespan data collection (children, adolescents, young and older adults). This method will aims to understand how these processes change throughout the life span in health and disease, and in elucidating their neural underpinnings.
