Research overview

I am a psycholinguist and neuroscientist. My research currently focuses on the comprehension of figurative language (metaphors, idioms) and its associated brain responses. Other research interests include processing of emotive stimuli, i.e., how emotional variables such as valence and arousal affect picture, face or word recognition, both at the behavioural and at the neural level. I also investigate topics related to language learning and second language processing.

For more information about my research interests, a full list of publications, and more research-related news, please see my personal web page.
