I am fascinated by human emotional and social behaviour and how relevant processes alter in neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Fronto-Temporal Dementia and High Functioning Autism. I am particularly interested in understanding the structure and functions of the salience network in human brain and how it contributes to different aspects of human’s emotional and social behaviour.
