Research goals

Dr. Cohen investigates how functional brain networks interact and reconfigure when confronted with changing cognitive demands, when experiencing transformations across development, and when facing disruptions in healthy functioning due to disease. Dr. Cohen also uses behavioral, neuroimaging, and clinical approaches taken from neuroscience, psychology, and mathematics to address her research questions.
