Research Overview

As a cognitive neuroscientist I study the brain mechanisms underlying all cognitive domains, but my research focuses primarily on social cognition. With both functional and structural neuroimaging (MRI), neurophysiological techniques (EEG) and behavioural paradigms, I perform multi-level investigations into the brain networks underlying imitative tendancies, perspective taking and empathy.

Currently I am developing experimental paradigms for "hyperscanning" studies – the simultaneous measurement of brain function from two interacting individuals. This allows me to explore the neural networks associated with these socio-emotional processes as they unfold during real social contexts.
