My main interest is to study how the brain processes contextual information to guide goal-oriented behavior and to facilitate the detection of task-relevant stimuli.
Currently I am pursuing a series of studies, which will examine local contextual processing in different clinical populations. These include patients who are known to have frontal dysfunction or cognitive impairment related to working memory functions, such as patients with Parkinson´s disease, schizophrenia, autism, juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, temporal lobe epilepsy, patients with parietal lesions and subjects with mild cognitive impairment. In addition I am interested in exploring the role of the prefrontal-parietal, and fronto-temporal networks in contextual processing, by examining connectivity and synchrony between cortical areas as a function of changes in local context.
