Research Project

Uncovering the Causal Connectivity of Distant Brain Regions within Human Intracranial Data

Humans have an innate ability to recognize patterns and to predict subsequent events. This ability comes from the complex widespread simultaneous processing and integration of information from distant brain regions. My project involves analyzing local field potential data from human stereo EEG recordings through implementing coupling connectivity measurements between distant brain regions.
