Research interest:

I study developmental changes in learning, inference and problem solving skills (fluid intelligence), focusing on visual cognition. Besides basic research, I develop intervention procedures for enhancing cognitive skills in normal and clinical populations. I use brain imaging for studying context dependent and lasting changes in neural representation, and for elucidating mechanisms of neurocognitive disorders.
