Developmental Group

Description of Research

Our aim is to investigate how certain cognitive processes develop in typically developing individuals and in developmental disorders, in particular autism spectrum disorder. One main focus of our research is the development of social cognition and decision making during human adolescence (SJB). Another focus is how dysfunction in specific neurocognitive cognitive mechanisms can produce the symptoms of autism (UF).

To address these issues of development and disorder, and to establish mind-brain mappings, we use the converging techniques of cognitive experimental studies, neuropsychological investigations, eye tracking, motion capture and neuroimaging.
