Developmental

Social Vision Lab

ABOUT OUR RESEARCH:

Our goal is to understand the cognitive and neural architecture of social perception and its origins in both typical and atypical development. As such, our work spans three areas:

      • Social Perception in Autism Spectrum Disorder (and related neurodevelopmental disorders)
      • Changes in the "social brain" across development
      • The functional organization of the "social brain" in typical adults

We use behavioural and eye-tracking paradigms, visual psychophysics and both structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders as well as typical children and adults.
