  • cognitive modelling (Bayesian approaches to human reasoning
  • connectionist modelling of language, memory, executive functions, cognitive development, developmental disorders and neuropsychological syndromes
  • cognitive architectures
  • perception, attention and emotion/anxiety (investigations of relevant processes using behavioural, electrophysiological, TMS, and hemodynamic measures of brain activity)
