Iulia Comsa

University position

PhD student
Supervised by Srivas Chennu


Department of Clinical Neurosciences



Research Themes

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Systems and Computational Neuroscience


My research aims to contribute to a better understanding of the dynamics of brain states at the boundary of consciousness, such as the process of falling asleep, clinically impaired consciousness, and sedation. My methods include graph theoretical analyses of brain connectivity networks and EEG microstates.

Other topics I am passionate about include brain-computer interfaces, artificial intelligence, and the hard problem of consciousness.

Research Focus




Brain connectivity

Complex networks

Clinical conditions

Disorders of consciousness


Behavioural analysis

Computational modelling

Electroencephalography (EEG)
