Research interests

My work focuses on understanding cognitive and neural processes involved in social cognition – how and why we think about and attend to ourselves and others - and how social and cultural experience shapes the way that we perceive the world. For example, we have recently developed a novel associative learning approach to demonstrate that people rapidly gain an attentional biases to neutral stimuli tagged to themselves compared with stimuli associated to others. This association also changes the connectivity between brain circuits, revealing the social construction of cognition at a neural level. In order to explore which factor(s) drive self-biased behaviour in humans, we have also examined the relations between three fundamental components of social cognition – the self, our emotional responses, and reward. Here we have employed behavioural and neuroimaging measures (EEG and fMRI), along with neuropsychological patient studies. In addition, we are very interested in the transfer of knowledge into other research fields, from child development through to healthy aging and psychiatric disorders by developing self-association approaches.
