Visual word recognition and interactions with attentional-executive sysems
Monday 29 August 2022

The aim of tis project is to understand potential interactions between the processes of visual word recogition and attentional-executive funtions, in aprticular with respect to the processing of semantic inromation. Experimental works include different types of bhavioral experimenal procedures (online or in-lab), to measure reaction times and resposne accuracy.

Visuo-spatial attention and letter recognition
Monday 29 August 2022

The aim of this project is to investigate potential contributions from visuo-spatial attention in letter recognition using behavioral experiments requiring the identification of letters presented in conditions of limited visibility.

Electrophysiological investigation of the link between decision-making and motor-response implementation
Students of STPC; Master students (Psychology) 
Monday 29 August 2022

The project investigates how decision-making processes triggered by lexical and semantic stimuli (words) may influence the following implementation of a motor response. Specifically, the aim is to describe the potentially continuous mapping of decisional evidence onto response channels, in order to overcome the traditional distinction between decision-making and motor response implementation. Experimental work relies on the acquisition and analysis of electromyographic (EMG) and/or electroencephalographic (EEG) data.
