My interests are diverse. They include states of consciousness, conscious perception, neuromodulation, entropy-related approaches to the study of brain activity, language, emotions, and more. I did my Ph.D. thesis on the topic of consciousness and attention analyzing ERPs and oscillations. Since then I have worked on several other topics employing a variety of data analysis tools, most recently including complexity measures. I believe all of this is in line with my most general interest which is to contribute to our understanding of the relations that exist between behavior, cognition, and experience.

In my research, I have designed a behavioral paradigm that allows us to study planning function combining EEG (scalp and intracranial) and Eye-Tracker systems. The main objective is to understand how planning induces frontal midline theta of prefrontal cortex origin.

Ph.D. Student

Psychologist (Universidad de Chile) and MSc in Paediatric Neuropsychology (University College London). My main interests are Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience and the neural bases of developmental disorders.

My Ph.D. project studies the relationship between Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), focusing on cognitive and physiological (EEG and pupil diameter) markers of working memory and emotional processing.

My interest focuses on multiscale information processing in the brain, and the modulatory role of neurotransmitters in shaping brain complex dynamics and behavior. My research combines scalp and intracranial electrophysiology, fMRI, pupil diameter analysis, and computational modeling.
