The scope of my research is to investigate the effects of curiosity on memory and how this is further influenced by the
availability of monetary incentives. In addition to behavioural effects, I am interested in the neural underpinnings supporting the effects during encoding and consolidation. As such, my work focuses on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). I use videos of magic tricks to induce curiosity to enhance our insights in how the brain processes and encodes stimuli closer to natural viewing conditions.
