Neural Dynamics of Visual Cognition Group
I joined the lab in November 2019 as a PhD student funded by the CONICYT scholarship program and the ERC. In my main project I am using M/EEG, fMRI and R/DNNs to better understand recurrent information processing during visual object recognition in humans. I am also interested in the role of motion in visual perception and the neural mechanisms that mediate stable percepts in a dynamic context.
I studied Psychology at the Catholic University of Chile for a bachelor and a professional degree, then I obtained a master's degree in Neuroscience at the University of Chile. In my thesis I focussed on dysfunctions in visual perception found in patients with schizophrenia. I have also collaborated as a research assistant in the Psychophysiology Lab and the Experimental Psychology Lab at the Catholic University of Chile in projects that tackled attention, sensorimotor coordination and language processing.
Besides science, I enjoy playing music, doing sports, complicating simple things with electronics and escaping the city at every opportunity.
