- cognitive neuroscience; systems neuroscience;
- perception and action (e.g. visually guided reaching; motor imagery, observation, and execution; eye movements; visuomotor representations; mirror neurons);
- perceptual decision making; linking sensorimotor networks to higher-level cognition;
- multisensory representations (visual, somatosensory, auditory);
- spatial reference frames (retinotopic, egocentric, allocentric);
- parieto-frontal loops in the human/primate brain;
- functional neuroimaging techniques, especially functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), TMS, MEG, combined EEG-fMRI;
- Multi-Voxel Pattern Analysis (MVPA).
