Research

My main areas of research interest are neonatal psychology, infant mental health, fetal-neonatal psychology, autism spectrum disorders. I am using a broad range of methods behavioural analysis, neuropsychological, psychophysiological (using EKG), neurophysiological (using ERP and fMRI). In general, I am interested in exploring normal and abnormal development from fetus to childhood. I am also interested in the psychology of music, arts and creativity, developmental, applied and neurobiological aspects.
