Description of Research Interests
Neural engineering: modelling of human sensory and multisensory integration processes using high density electrophysiological analysis, Diffusion Tensor Imaging and multimodal fusion (EEG, ECG, EMG, EGG and EOG) for neurological diagnosis and disease management. Models for understanding of underlying physiology, identifying non-invasive electrophysical cognitive biomarkers for schizophrenia, mild cognitive impairment, multiple sclerosis, dystonia and the detection of seizure in neonatal infants.
