Main research areas
The focus of my research revolves around network dynamics and neural encoding schemes, with the ultimate goal of better understanding the neural basis of perception and cognition in the primate visual system. To address my research question, I employ brain imaging, electrophysiological and computer simulation methods to reveal both the network-level and the neuron-level substrate underlying our cognitive functions.

Bilingualism and the Size of Auditory Cortical Areas
Bilingualism has become common. Infants' auditory cortex undergoes structural maturation during the first three years (Yakovlev & Lecours, 1967). They develop an auditory capacity to specifically recognize acoustic patterns used in their native ...
