Other projects in our lab include social neuroscience (how to optimize community intervention programs in high-risk neighborhoods) and the use of real-time feedback neuroimaging to break drug addiction (in collaboration with Stephen LaConte at Virginia Tech).  

 Other recent projects include illusory motion reversal, the flash lag effect, a theory of cerebellar glomeruli, extracellular calcium as a neurotransmitter, and dopamine and human decision-making.
