Short Bio

My research uses behavioral paradigms and a variety of neurobehavioral techniques such as non-invasive Electric Brain Stimulation (tES), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), EEG, and fMRI to investigate the functioning of the visual system in healthy and visually impaired observers. Specifically, my research interests focus on motion processing, form-motion integration, visuospatial attention, visual short-term memory, perceptual learning, and the role of awareness and attention in visual perception. I am also interested to visual and cognitive functions in video game players.

My research combines non-invasive methods of visual research with clinical aspects allowing for the development of specific rehabilitative strategies in clinical populations such as amblyopia and macular degeneration. Part of my most recent research also combines paradigms of perceptual learning with non-invasive brain stimulation to strengthen and speed up perceptual reorganization.
