Dr. Andric earned a PhD in Psychology with an emphasis in cognitive neuroscience. He has previously studied the neurobiology of language and action understanding. In particular, he has investigated the way that the brain functions in processing manual gestures that are used in communication, both when the gestures are presented on their own, as emblematic gestures, as well as with accompanying spoken language, as co-speech gestures. Additionally, he has developed and applied data-driven computational methods to investigate the brain's functional network structure during discourse comprehension. His current research interests extend beyond the language and action domains to include understanding neural function in multisensory integration and multisensory emergence. He has been at the CIMeC since July 2012.
