Our Research


Broadly speaking, our research investigates how the body shapes the mind. To do so, we apply a tripartite, integrative approach to understanding embodied neural mechanisms, their role in perceptual awareness, and what happens when such mechanisms are disturbed (as in psychopathology). To this end, we leverage a variety of methodological and conceptual techniques, including philosophical and phenomenological inquiry, functional and effective connectivity modelling, computational and signal-theoretic approaches, quantitative MRI, and psychophysics.

More specifically, our research can be described as following three core themes (click each to learn more):
