Research focus: The research of our group focuses on the neural mechanisms of memory and navigation in humans during sleep and wake, using a multimodal approach with an emphasis on invasive and non-invasive electrophysiology. In particular, we are interested in the role of the thalamus in these cognitive processes, which we are investigating in an ERC StG funded project focused on human intracranial recordings.
