Main Focus

I am interested in the temporal dynamics of syntactic analysis performed by the human brain during language comprehension. By employing aneurophysiological (E/MEG) and neuro-stimulation techniques and combining them, my research investigates how incremental syntactic parsing operations are implemented in the language network.
