Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Friedman's research is focused on specifying the mechanisms (both neural and genetic) underlying individual differences in executive functions –– the higher-level cognitive processes that regulate lower-level processes and thereby enable control over thoughts and actions –– and their relations to everyday self-regulation as well as various forms of psychopathology. She uses a variety of approaches, including twin studies, neuroimaging, and computational modeling.
