My present research focuses on the structure and function of the social brain in primates. I aim to establish an anatomical comparison of the social brain across primates, using mainly connectivity methods such as diffusion MRI and resting-state fMRI. Then, further use this anatomical knowledge to test reliably how neural systems function in different species using task fMRI. My main focus is on the temporal lobe, because, while it is thought to be unique to primates and hosting some of the social behaviours, its precise anatomy and function is still a subject of debate.
