Research interests

While studying biochemistry at the University of Chili I become interested in cognitive neurosciences. After my biochemistry degree I completed a Cognitive Science master at Paris and then I performed a doctoral thesis under the direction of Nathalie George. In my PhD thesis I used behavioral and neuroimaging (MEG) methods to understand how the brain codes the attentional and emotional aspects of others' eye gaze. I have also been involved in a MEG study investigating the neural correlates of aesthetic experience,

I am interested in the psychological and neurophysiological aspects of cognition in general.
More particularly, I aim at investigating the neural underpinning of individuality and experience, and the role of emotion and action representations,
I am also aim at understanding how modern neuroimaging methods such as the EEG and MEG allow us to describe cognitive functions,
