My research program focuses on the neural basis of social cognition - the ability to interpret the actions, intentions and emotions of others. Non-verbal communication is a main theme in the laboratory, as is the context in which the action is presented in. We are developing activation tasks that attempt to mimic real-life situations as closely as possible. Our experiments use combinations of different techniques including behavior, functional MRI, event-related potentials, eye tracking and transcranial magnetic stimulation. The final technique or techniques used are determined by the particular scientific question being asked. The laboratory has multimodal integration capability.
