The objective of my group’s research program is to formulate and validate explanations of cognitive phenomena in terms of their underlying neurophysiological mechanisms. Our focus is on active perception. That is, perceptual phenomena that reflect the role of the perceiving organism (attention, prediction, working memory maintenance), as opposed to the physical properties of the stimulus. In our experiments, we measure neurophysiological activity using a variety of techniques: MEG, ECoG and EEG in humans, and ECoG in rats. Most of our experiments target the somatosensory system. Our research program also has a methodological and an applied component: (1) the characterization of interactions in spatially distributed neural activity, and (2) the use of top-down generated neural signals in communication and control.
