Parole chiave: Spatial Attention within and across sensory modalities Action-perception links Conflict and Cognitive Control Multisensory representations of space and the body

My research interests lie within the field of Cognitive Psychology. I use a combination of behavioural and psychophysiological measures (EEG, ERP) to investigate several aspects of perception, attention and action.

The main focus of my research has been space and selective attention. I am specifically interested in understanding the brain mechanism underlying attentional selection within and across different sensory modalities such as vision, audition and touch. Further, my research has focused upon elucidating the links between attention and action: specifically, the perceptual consequences of movement planning and the nature of the action-perception coupling. Recently, I have started to investigate the features and plasticity of peri-personal space (PPS) representations.
