Research interests

The aim of my PhD is to study the time course of visual word recognition during natural reading of sentences, co-registering eye movements and event-related potentials (ERPs), therefore recording fixation-related potentials (FRPs).

Although eye movements and ERPs have been recorded separately to investigate reading, only recently have both methodologies been employed simultaneously to provide ERP and eye movement data that directly correspond. With this non-invasive technique we can precisely time-lock ERPs to oculomotor events (fixations and saccades) and examine the electrical brain activity associated with word recognition in natural contexts.
