Research topic: How is speech represented in the human brain at the single neuron level – In health and neurodegenerative diseases?
Research methods: Studies in humans using: Single neuron recordings in humans; Human neurophysiology; Intra-operative experiments; Speech analysis; Modeling (e.g., Information Theory techniques); Decoding behavior from electrical neural activity; Local field potentials (LFPs); Electrocorticography (ECoG); Intra-cranial electroencephalography (IC-EEG).
Main projects in the lab include:
- Understanding the representation of speech in the neuronal code in the human brain.
- Decoding speech contents from the electrical activity of single neurons or populations of neurons.
- Understanding the deterioration of speech in Parkinson’s disease at the single neuron level.
