My current work mainly focuses on the determinants and neural correlates of age and ageing according to face recognition memory and face perception. Furthermore I am interested in:
- the own-age-bias in face recognition memory
- cognitive ageing
- age-related changes in the functional neuroanatomy of face processing and memory
