Cultural Neuroscience, Cognitive Development, Visual Cognition, Face Processing, Empathy
I'm investigating how culture may influence social perception for my thesis; using eye tracking methods to investigate emotional expression understanding during development and brain imaging methods to investigate neural mechanisms involved in empathic understanding across cultures.
