More information Less information

We are developing new protocols to understand the distinction between conscious and non-conscious information processing in the human brain, and its role in guiding cognition and behaviour. We combine advanced brain imaging procedures, psychophysical tasks and state-of-the-art computational methods.

Our research encompasses multiple cognitive domains, including perceptual selection, learning and memory, and language, as well as metacognition—our ability to reflect, monitor and control our own cognitive processes.

We study these topics in children, healthy adults and patients. We are committed to translating our findings for the benefit of the wider society, by developing educational and clinical applications through targeted neurocognitive interventions that can promote adaptive behavioral change.
