Our research group studies the neurocognitive performance and neurobehavioural functioning in healthy and clinical population. Current research focuses on the area of ageing brains and their associated neuropsychological conditions. We are also developing methods that can help with early detection of age-related cognitive deficits and monitoring the progression of the deterioration.

Our research investigates all aspects of how the human visual system provides us with information about the external world, with a particular focus on face recognition. In our research, we combine information from different sources, such as eye-tracking, EEG-ERP and classical behavioral and psychophysical paradigms.
