Research Interests

The general area of interest is how temporal information of natural stimuli is encoded and processed by the brain. Experimental techniques focus on interpreting and modulating brain activity in humans non-invasively using electro-encephalography and trans-cranial electrical stimulation, in short: "reading" and "writing" the brain with electric fields. The work is often coupled with auditory and visual psychophysics and always incorporates computational or mathematical models.

In the News

The study on audiovisual speech recognition was featured in

Our work on brain-reading technology has generated some interest in the popular media:

I just went back to print a couple articles listed in the above article: When The Brain is a Component of the Computer and Brain Computer Interfaces: Where Human and Machine Meet and see that the links have been corrupted. We should be able to locate articles from the sources mentioned.
