Organizing dimensions in naturalistic action perception

[link], paper in prep.

We use a data-driven method to recover interpretable dimensions from behavioural action similarity judgments across two different experiments.

Action representations in brain and behaviour

[link] (preprint)

We evaluate the contribution of visual, social, and action features to behavioural and neural (EEG) naturalistic action representations.

MEG hypoconnectivity linked to rare copy number variants


We find decreased MEG resting-state connectivity in adults with rare high-risk copy number variants (CNVs), suggesting a potential common mechanism across genotypes.

Feature extraction in rapid face perception

[link] (preprint)

Using cross-identity decoding, RSA, and variance partitioning, we find a link between facial configuration, ventral stream MEG patterns, and behavioural responses during an expression discrimination task.

Scene representations, from features to categories


Cross-decoding and source-space RSA show that a categorical response to scenes emerges in visual cortex within 200 ms, potentially supported by low spatial frequency features, even in the absence of a categorization task.

Spatiotemporal dynamics of expression processing


Sensor and source-space MVPA of whole-brain MEG data shows that the extraction of expression-related features from faces begins within 100 ms in visual cortex in the absence of an expression-related task.
