The main question our lab is interested in is how do we recognize people?
More specifically we examine:
- What is the role of dynamic information in person recognition?
- How face, body and voice information are integrated to generate a multi-modal representation of a person?
- What is the role of perceptual and conceptual information in face/person recognition of familiar and unfamiliar people?
We are also interested in the neural mechanisms that underlie the representation of multiple objects and how they may be modulated by perceptual or conceptual associations between them.
To answer these questions we apply multiple techniques including EEG, fMRI, TMS, eye tracking and psychophysical measures.
