About

Our laboratory focuses on the neural mechanisms underlying (visual and crossmodal) attention and working memory in healthy young adults, healthy elderly adults, and adults with psychiatric and neurological disorders. By linking mental chronometry to electroencephalographic brain signals, we aim at dissociating the temporal dynamics of perceptual and response-related processes as a function of, for instance, top-down expectancy, bottom-up saliency, and intertrial history biases.
