I work on language but since I know language is not alone in the brain, I study its interaction with other cognitive functions. I am mainly interested in electrophysiology and, in particular, oscillatory activity. I've been combining my interest in language and in electrophysiology in much of my research, not only in healthy but also in patient populations.

Picture-word interference experiment in which I manipulated the duration of distractor presentation, with constant presentation duration of the picture. This experiment was part of the series published in Piai et al. (2012), Memory & Cognition. See data HERE

Picture-word interference experiment in which I manipulated frequency, length, and orthographic neighbourhood of the distractor word. See data HERE.
