Main Research

In my research I work on the interaction between perceptive processes and higher-order cognitive functions. I am particularly interested in the phenomenon of visual snow.
Patients suffering from visual snow perceive constantly changing images in their visual field. In my research I will focus on using neuroimaging methods and analysis tools to broaden our understanding on the neural correlate of visual snow.
