The Brain Dynamics Lab
Welcome to Our Laboratory
The Brain Dynamics Lab is a multidisciplinary research laboratory that studies how brain dynamics give rise the human cognition.
The Brain Dynamics Lab is a multidisciplinary research laboratory that studies brain dynamics, predominantly in humans, in order to understand the mechanisms giving rise to cognitive function and dysfunctions.
We interpret the brain as a highly dynamic self-organising system, which continuously adapts to a changing, uncertain and noisy environment, by dynamically modifying its structure and function, relying on the history of previously processed information. Such an amazing capability is thought to be a fundamental computational property of the brain, which we observe in the way it shapes the behaviour and the way it manifests in Neuroscience data. We approach the above problem by bridging the gap between the underlying neuronal dynamics and the emergent responses, whether they are of behavioural or of neurophysiological (M/EEG and fMRI) nature. In order to face such an ambitious goal, our lab then attracts expertise from a wide spectrum of disciplines including STEM, biological, psychological and clinical sciences.
