Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

I study language as a cognitive and a neural system. My research focuses on the neural mechanisms that support spoken language comprehension, and the structure of the underlying lexical representations. Using behavioural and neuroimaging techniques, I investigate how different properties of the speech input engage the underlying neural architecture to produce successful comprehension.
