Timothy Verstynen studies how the specific organization of connections in the brain, particularly anatomical connections between the neocortex and subcortical areas, constrains how humans plan, learn and execute actions.

Verstynen is also involved with launching health neuroscience – a new field of study that explores how environmental, social and physical factors impact the brain and behavior.
