Our research focuses on the neural and computational mechanisms underlying perception and attention, with a particular emphasis on neurodiversity. We use state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques such as fMRI, computational models, and behavioral assessments to shed light on the complex mechanisms that drive our interactions with the environment. In an effort to promote understanding and acceptance of neurodiversity, we integrate a focus on autism and related neurodivergent conditions into our research. We believe that understanding the neural mechanisms of perception and attention in these populations can provide valuable insights into the full spectrum of human experiences.
