I am interested in visual perception and how it is shaped by cognitive and emotional factors. In my PhD thesis, I examined these issues using electroencephalography (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), as well as their simultaneous combination. Currently, we are conducting studies on non-conscious visual perception using real-time fMRI.
