Research Interests

  • Social cognition, social interactions and their brain mechanisms, non-verbal communication
  • Atypicalities in socio-emotional competencies in autism spectrum conditions
  • Event related brain potentials and pupillary responses as correlates of mental processing

 

I am interested in social neuropsychology in the context of processing motivational and rewarding stimuli. The aim of my doctoral project is to better understand how autism spectrum conditions influence sensitivity to rewards. I use both the population-based approach, in which we target autistic traits in the general population, and the psychopathological approach, in which we compare individuals diagnosed with autism to neurotypicals. I am interested in how abnormal development of social cognition may influence reward value processing. For instance, whether individuals with autism find social appreciation (like a smile) less rewarding than neurotypical individuals, and whether this pattern changes when facing monetary rewards? To address these issues, I employ both neural (event-related brain potentials) and other psychophysiological indicators (pupil dilation response) of social and non-social reward processing.
