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
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.
