The overarching goal of my lab’s research is to better understand what in the brain makes us perceive the world the way we do. Therefore we study the variability and commonalities between people’s perception and brain function. Our research mainly employs functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and behavioural, psychophysical measurements.
However, in collaboration with my colleagues I have also used magnetoencephalography (MEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and other neurophysiological techniques. The methods are merely the tools; what matters most are the biological questions motivating our research. Therefore the choice of methodology is driven first and foremost by whatever technique is best suited to address the particular question we are addressing at the time.
