My research explores various interactions between media, psychology, and biology in general and neuroscience and motion pictures and new media in specific. I am interested in the various ways in which biology confines multiple aspects of the cinematic experience and vice versa – from low-level visual and auditory perception to high-level phenomena such as empathy and agency. I am also particularly interested in translational research that makes use of cinematic, virtual and augmented reality technologies in the context of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) aiming to enhance and rehabilitate psychophysiological functions.
