Research statement: 
Our mind can process only a few items together and it takes time to do so. ‘Attention’ is there to select relevant information in the environment, excluding everything else. This is a function that is at the heart of cognition. On it depends what we perceive, decide, learn, or memorize. 
I previously worked on the effect of noradrenaline on attention network in nonhuman primates. I recently joined the Patrik Vuilleumier’s team to explore the Pulvinar role in attention processes. My research is carried out in healthy subjects and in brain-damaged patients, using behavioral measures and neuroimaging methodology (fMRI).
Research expertise:
1. Analyzing task-based fMRI and resting-state functional connectivity (AFNI, FSL,SPM).
2. Analyzing behavioral data (R software). 
3. Developing experimental protocols in Cogent for Matlab
