Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

As a part of the impaired consciousness research group, I work on developing the use of EEG (Electroencephalography) and BCI (Brain Computer Interfaces) for assessing and assisting patients in vegetative and minimally conscious states. I am funded by the James S. McDonnell Foundation.
