Further Information

Research focus: My research focuses on human sensation, perception and action by using a wide range of methodologies, including psychophysics and behavioural testing, fMRI, EEG and TMS. In particular, I am interested in the neurocognitive aspects of action and conscious intention, and the brain processes that allow the motor system to link actions to events that occur in the environment. I also study the role of body representation as a constituent element of self-identity.

Key words: Cognitive Neuroscience of (voluntary) Action; Cognition and Action, Body Perception, Self/Other Distinction, Self-Concept
