Scientific interests and goals:
During the NCP years I wish to deepen the most fundamental topics about visual attention in cognitive psychology. I also want to study the relationships between attention and object recognitions.

Reflections of the NCP study program
I chose NCP program since I want both to improve both my general knowledge in experimental psychology and my research skills. I have found something that merges both the aspects, providing also a fertile and friendly environment for us students
