I am a Research Fellow interested in large-scale neural dynamics underlying cognitive functioning. What principles organize brain dynamics and what type of patterns do these dynamics give rise to? I have a particular interest in the role of synchronous neural activity in motor coordination. We investigate neural dynamics by means of time-frequency techniques and multivariate statistics in EEG and EMG. We also use computational models to identify the key mechanisms underlying the experimental findings. In addition to basic neuroscience research, I recently started applying these techniques to understand the changes in large-scale brain dynamics in people with mood disorders such as depression.
