The main research interest of our lab is to understand the processes that enable humans to build a coherent representation of space and to orient their attention efficiently to relevant environmental stimuli. In this aim we study the functional characteristics and neuroanatomy of neuropsychological disorders such as spatial neglect, extinction, and visual agnosia as well as electrophysiological mechanisms of attention and eye movement programming in healthy subjects. We use diverse complementary approaches, including psychophysics, eye tracking, lesion-symptom mapping, ERPs and fMRI.
