I am interested in infant vision, particularly visual and visuomotor development of the dorsal and ventral streams in infants and children.
In infancy, visual traits determine a manual response and the kinematic parameters of each type of response, including reach-and-grasp and surface exploration. These responses reflect the properties of visuo-motor modules which appear in infants from 4 to 12 months old. Since these modules are part of the dorsal cortical stream, they interact with the ventral stream processing in development and in the mature system. My current research is on the perceptual development of infants with hyperopia.

Individual differences in children's global motion sensitivity correlate with TBSS-based measures of the superior longitudinal fasciculus.
