Current Research and Interests

I am generally interested in the development and enhancement of cognitive functions such as perception, attention, and memory and how these processes are influenced by emotions. In my past research, I used EEG and behavioral research methods to address the neural patterns of numerical cognition, language and affective behavior.
I currently work on the neural correlates of the illusory movement of the body produced by visual stimulation. I use a combination of EEG and NIBS (tACS-TMS) techniques to understand and modulate bistable perception in virtual reality or simulator contexts. Based on EEG-ERPs methods, I also explore the influence of the body posture on positive or negative affective states.
