What we do…

The human face conveys a wealth of complex information (e.g., identity, gaze, emotion, gender, etc.) critical for social interactions. Despite face information is conveyed via subtle variations captured by the retina, its analysis by the human visual system is fast and accurate.

Our goal is to understand how the human brain solves the complex task of face perception.

By means of psychophysical, electrophysiological, and neuroimaging techniques,
we explore what, when, and where face information is integrated in the brain to yield rich and complex face percepts.

The lab is part of two research institutes at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL, Belgium): the Institute of Research in Psychology (IPSY) and the Institute of Neuroscience (IoNS), located respectively in Louvain-la-Neuve and Brussels.
