My research topic pertains to cognitive psychology and social neuroscience.  

My work contributes to the understanding of the cognitive and neural mechanisms allowing non-verbal social cues (such as emotions and gaze directions) to constantly shape one’s perception, cognition and behavior.  I also investigate whether or not the processing of non-verbal social cues is impaired in different pathologies (including Autism, Alzheimer Disease and unilateral neglect) and may be used or not to compensate for other cognitive or social declines.

I  employ  different  neuroscientific methodologies  and  techniques  from  cognitive  neuroscience  in  combination  with  behavioral measures,  including  electroencephalography  (EEG),  functional  magnetic  resonance  imaging (fMRI) and the recording of autonomic responses.
