Interests

I'm a cognitive neurologist. My research is centered around semantic and perceptual processing of concrete entities.

The methods that I use to conduct this research consist of advanced fMRI and MEG techniques (multi-voxel pattern analysis and machine learning), but also voxel-based morphometry and behavioral testing.

Healthy subjects may participate in these studies, but also many patients with e.g. focal cortical lesions, Primary Progressive Aphasia, Posterior Cortical Atrophy, Alzheimer's Disease, ...
