    Research interests

    My main interest is in the study principles of Neural Coding, especially for visual perception, memory, visuo-motor coordination and learning. This research involves the use and development of advanced methods of signal processing -such as wavelets, chaos theory, statistical mechanics and non-linear synchronization- for studying multiple single cell recordings and local field potentials.
