Thesis topic : Investigating the development of visual information use for facial expression recognition with behavioural psychophysical and eye-tracking methods.
Supervisor : R. Caldara


Current Research

Cognitive Development, Social Cognition, Face Processing, Cuture, Empathy 

I'm interested in the development of social cognition. For my thesis I'm using eye tracking and behavioural methods to investigate emotional expression recognition during development and brain imaging methods to investigate neural mechanisms involved in empathic understanding.
