We are interested in plasticity at the behavioral and neural levels. We want to understand neural mechanisms underlying behavioral plasticity. We study basic features of brain organization, their stability and individual uniqueness on the one hand and their adaptability in response to pathology and learning on the other hand.
Neuroplasticity and brain organization | reorganization in response to pathological states such as stroke | individual cortical adaptability and its modulation | fMRI connectivity | spatial and temporal features of on-going brain signals | learning and consolidation in ecological settings | training-related neuroplasticity.
