My research activity consists in the investigation of EEG correlates of body perception and social interaction. One line of research I am currently developing consists in targeting the visual perception of hands. I have extended the understanding of the lateral occipito-temporal cortex (LOTC) by describing a specific Theta modulation over these regions for socially relevant body effectors such as hands and arms. Specific EEG activity for hands and arms suggests a particular pathway to quickly detect, understand and predict the outcome of actions of others. In line with this, I am also involved in studying joint actions. More specifically, I target error monitoring EEG activity during motor interactions. I am interested in error-related activity during Human-Virtual Partner interactions. Through several joint tasks, where a virtual partner is performing unexpected actions, I record both kinematics and EEG data from the human participant interacting with a virtual partner. Beyond the classical Error-related Negativity and frontal Theta modulation when the virtual partner changes its behaviour, we also target Theta dynamics over occipito-temporal cortices, and the link between body perception in the LOTC and the frontal monitoring system through functional connectivity.
