The main focus of my current work is to use EEG in birds to better understand the female response to male courtship displays (ring doves, Streptopelia risoria). If courtship in birds is viewed as a form of biotic art, we can interpret the results in the context of neuroaesthetics. I am also investigating multisensory processing in birds. My previous work focused on visual attention in humans (whether top-down control of visual processing changes in healthy old age) and non-human primates (whether cholinergic neuromodulation mediates top-down attention effects in visual cortex), and multisensory integration in humans.

Research Interest
