Research topic: Cognitive and Neural basis of Face and Object recognition.

Research methods: Psychophysics, functional MRI, EEG/Event related potentials (ERPs), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Eye tracking. Simultaneous recording of EEG-fMRI and EEG-TMS


Main projects in the lab include:

  1. How do face and body processing mechanisms interact to generate an image of a person?
  2. What is the role of perceptual vs. conceptual/semantic information in face/person recognition?
  3. What is the role of bodies and motion in person recognition?
  4. What is the role of dynamic information on different aspects (e.g., identity, expression) of person recognition?
  5. What is the effect of experience on the representation of faces and their neural correlates?
  6. What are the critical features used for face identification?
  7. What are the mechanisms used to recognize familiar faces and how do  they  differ from those used to recognized unfamiliar faces?
