Dr. Martinez is an expert in the field of brain imaging and cognition. Her research over the past 15 years has provided fundamental insights into the basic brain mechanisms of attention and perception, and more recently into abnormalities of sensory brain function in schizophrenia patients. Dr. Martinez utilizes both electrophysiological and hemodynamic approaches to investigate brain function, combining recordings of event-related brain potentials with functional magnetic resonance imaging so that both the time course and anatomical substrates of sensory and perceptual processes can be visualized within the same experimental context. Her recent studies have demonstrated how different forms of selective attention (spatial, feature-based, object-based) are implemented at different levels of the extrastriate visual cortex and have shown that the magnocellular and parvocellular visual pathways play distinctive roles in attention. Dr. Martinez is currently applying these basic approaches to the analysis of sensory deficits in schizophrenia.
