Welcome to the neural mechanisms of attention

. . . at the whole brain network level

The communication between distant brain areas and the information flow between them is one of the most urgent and most fascinating questions of modern neuroscience.

We use human brain imaging techniques to study the communication between brain areas by means of neural oscillations and synchrony. Magnetoencephalography (MEG/EEG) allows us to capture the highly dynamic interactions in large-scale networks with millisecond precision.

We seek to understand the general principles by which the directed communication between different brain areas may help orchestrate perception and sensorimotor control.
