Welcome to the Perception to Concepts Group!

At the Per2Con Group we study the relation between perception and cognition: on one side, we investigate which aspects of perception act as fundamental building blocks of language-based symbolic cognition; on the other side we study if and how symbolic acquisition in turn shapes perception. We use psychophysics and neuroimaging (fMRI, M-EEG) in adults and children of different cultures and cognitive skills. Our research spans over two main areas: number processing and word processing.
