    • "I want my research to help people, but at the same time, I’ve always had an instinctive desire to discover things. I tell my students it’s like Christmas morning when they come in with new data from a completed experiment. I don’t know where that comes from, it’s just instinctive – it’s the kind of thing that brings me joy."

    • "The Center for BrainHealth and the University of Texas at Dallas have given me the opportunity to take our work into how normal people store and retrieve knowledge in the brain and apply that to a wide array of medical and societal issues. More importantly, it has offered the opportunity to help train the next generation of cognitive neuroscientists, the accomplishment of which I am the proudest."
