Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Systems and Computational Neuroscience

Interests

My primary interest is in psychophysics as a tool to investigate the brain. I am using behavioural paradigms that rely on basic perceptual mechanisms to look at the visual system in autism. This not only gives rise to information on if - and how - people on the autism spectrum may perceive the world differently. It also allows for hypotheses on the underlying neural features of this different perception.
