Theme 4: Brain Networks and Neuronal Communication

Synchronisation in Neural Systems

The sins lab (synchronization in neural systems) uses cutting-edge techniques and a multi-species, multiscale neuroscientific approach to deepen our understanding of how disparate neural systems form transient functionally unified networks. Our research spans computational modeling (neural network simulations), rodent electrophysiology and optogenetics, and human EEG and electrical stimulation. We focus on how the brain uses oscillations and synchronization to coordinate local information processing and orchestrate long-range communication.
