  • Project «Tracking visual images in healthy aging»
    Visual mental imagery characterizes our inner worlds. We mostly experience our world via visual perception and when recalling past events, we rely on mental imagery. In this project we aim to investigate the generation and inspection of detailed mental images in the elderly with an eye-tracking approach. Eye data provide a unique window to understand mental imagery and visual memory in the elderly.
  • Project "The impact of mind-wandering on the precision of episodic memory"
    Disengaging from the external world – a phenomenon referred to as mind-wandering – is a ubiquitous experience that has been shown to be associated with detriments in cognitive performance across a large range of tasks. In the current project, we investigate the impact of task disengagement on spatial episodic memory.
