Research focus

My research focus is on the cognitive and neural mechanisms for person perception with a particular emphasis on how people recognize familiar individuals, access person knowledge, and form and update representations of others. Immediate access to information about people is essential for effective social interactions. I am currently investigating the neural systems that participate in retrieval of information on someone we know and the automaticity of access to person knowledge and the emotional associations during the process of recognition. I am using both psychophysical and fMRI measures.
