    Collapse Overview
    Ted's research revolves around 1) the characterization of neural networks and mechanisms underlying cognitive control, 2) understanding how these systems change with age and 3) exploring cognitive training and non-invasive brain stimulation approaches to remediate cognitive control declines.
