Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

My work focuses on the perceptual and attentional roots of creative thinking, cognitive flexibility, and problem solving, in both healthy and clinical populations. Through behavioural paradigms and brain stimulation methodologies, my research seeks to understand how the mind combines perceptual and cognitive processes to solve problems effectively, to think creatively, and to interact with others in a prosocial way.
