Research

My research focuses on the study of perceptual, predictive, attentional, and emotional mechanisms under the embodied cognition framework. The interaction between cognitive and perceptual processes, the study and the computational modeling of the predictive, attentional, and emotional mechanisms involved, as well as the study of prediction error minimization, prediction error dynamics, and internal models under the predictive processing framework, are of my special interest.
