Research area: Cognitive and computational neuroscience. Methods: computational modeling, experimental psychology, neuropsychology, functional neuroimaging. Main topics: numerical cognition, reading and dyslexia, attention and space representation. Research in my laboratory (Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, is focused on the study of the computational bases of cognition, from development to skilled performance and to breakdowns of processing in atypical development or after brain damage. To address these issues we use a cognitive neuroscience approach that combines several methodologies, including computational modeling, behavioral studies (reaction times and psychophysics), neuropsychology, and functional neuroimaging (fMRI, fNIRS, EEG). Main themes: numeracy and number processing, reading and dyslexia, attention and spatial cognition.
