Research Goal

To characterize the neural dynamics of normal (motivation and memory) and abnormal (epilepsy) processing, from single neuron to whole brain processing. To develop scalp recording methods that capture deep brain activity and tools for the detection and localization of abnormal electrical activity (as in epilepsy), using combined electrophysiology and imaging techniques.

Main Resaerch Themes

Developing an innovative fMRI/EEG system that uses EEG to detect epileptic activity and then combines fMRI to identify the source of this activity.


Mapping single neuron electrophysiological activity before during and after epileptic seizures..


Developing novel tools for brain impedance mapping.

Developing machine learning based tools to monitor deep brain activity using scalp EEG recordings

Study motivational processes and how they effect human decision making using a unique multi-level examination from the level of a single neuron to whole brain fMRI.

Multilevel examination of memory processes.

Developing machine learning based algorithms to detect functional brain areas prior to neurosurgery.
