Equipment & Techniques
I work in the research group of Professor Valerie Voon. The lab uses a range of methods to understand the neural basis of neuropsychiatric disorders. My primary role in the lab is to make sense of intracranial neurophysiological data acquired from patients undergoing deep brain stimulation therapy or Stereo-EEG monitoring for epilepsy. Such cases give us the rare opportunity to record neural activity directly from the human brain with exquisite spatial and temporal resolution, which no other neuroimaging method can achieve individually. I'm responsible for designing and programming behavioural tasks to isolate processes of interest and analysing the local field potentials (LFP's).
