Spatial Cognition We make use of neuroimaging, genetic, behavioral and neuropsychological approaches to investigate the cognitive skills and neural mechanisms underlying the human ability to orient and navigate in spatial surroundings. We are interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms related to spatial cognition throughout the life span (from early development to the elderly) and in the event of clinical conditions affecting the central nervous system.
Neuroimaging We use fMRI, DTI, VBM, and functional and structural connectivity techniques allowing us to look at different brain mechanisms.
This supervisor is currently unavailable.
We are looking for students with a strong interest in learning about brain mechanisms responsible for specific cognitive domains.
