Research topic: Investigating neural measures of visual working-memory representations. Explaining the dynamic mechanisms responsible for creating and updating visual representation in working-memory and how they affect behavior, from an individual differences approach.
Research methods: Electrophysiology (Event Related Potential- mainly the contralateral delay activity), Behavioral measures (accuracy and reaction-times).
Projects in the lab include:
- Understanding the online binding processes that integrate objects into a single working-memory representation in order to compensate for working-memory severe capacity limitations
- How visual working memory maintains complex and novel information and the unique processes that are involved when representing familiar and novel information
- Investigating how emotional information is represented in visual-working memory, the neural processes that are involved, and the direct links between maintaining emotional information in working-memory and behavior
