The Timing and Cognition Laboratory is a research group in the Center for Mathematics, Computing and Cognition (CMCC) at Federal University of ABC (UFABC). The laboratory is part of the Interdisciplinary Unit for Applied Neuroscience (NINA).
The Laboratory is headed by Professors Marcelo S. Caetano, Raphael Y. de Camargo, Andre M. Cravo, and Marcelo B. Reyes. The lab has several graduate and undergraduate students, postdocs and collaborators.
Broadly speaking, our interest is to understand how we perceive and use time in different domains. Our research combines methodologies such as visual psychophysics, eye-tracking, computational modeling, single-unit recordings in freely-moving rodents, intracerebral microinjections, transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS), functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and non-invasive electrophysiological recordings (EEG) in humans.
