Biosketch

My research focuses on understanding brain neurodynamics by combining insights from human experimental measures (MEG/EEG and fMRI) and computational neural network modeling. This two-fold approach enables us to make a connection between microscopic cellular level neuronal events and macroscopic, non-invasively measured, brain activity. I am particularly interested in the neurodynamics of attention in the somatosenosory system. Some of my current questions of inquiry include: How does selective tactile attention affect brain activity measured in both the time and frequency domain? Does this activity correlate with perception? Are there specific cellular level neuronal events that regulate this activity?
