primarily studies the functional effects of depression on cognition and behavior, the underlying neurological mechanisms, and the implications for understanding the evolutionary history of depression. More generally, his group is interested in how to distinguish between a normal psychological response and true instances of mental disorder, and why mental disorders persist in populations.

  • I am interested in the neural mechanisms involved in the deployment of attentional resources in three-dimensional space in both non-brain injured and brain injured individuals. As well, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)technology, I am interested in the impact of acquired brain injury (e.g., stroke) on residual neurocognitive function and potential resource re-allocation. Lastly, again using fMRI technology, I am interested in the various types of executive dysfunction(s) observed in people suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Dr. Sonnadara is a behavioural neuroscientist and sound designer by training, with a special interest in how our experiences help shape our sensory and motor systems. much of his research focuses on how we learn complex skills, and using this knowledge to improve training programs. ranil works primarily with health professionals, musicians and athletes. his lab also studies how we evaluate performance, particularly in high-stakes environments such as the operating theatre. the 'big picture' questions driving this work are how learning and practice change our brain, and how these changes impact the way we interact with the world around us. please visit ranil's lab site for more information.
