Natural and modulated neural communication: State-dependent decoding and driving of human brain oscillations

Project summary

Professors Gross and Thut will be working in partnership to understand aspects of rhythmic network activity in the human brain. As part of this research, they plan to develop and use methodologies to decode and change brain communication by means of MEG/EEG and non-invasive brain stimulation. They seek to understand how the oscillatory network activity gives rise to the complexity and efficiency of human behaviour and to explore to what extent this activity can be controlled by brain stimulation in the healthy and diseased brain.
