The main focus of my research is early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease using computational modeling of combined TMS-EEG. I compare key measures of cortical excitability, connectivity, and plasticity in health and disease in order to discover early bio-markers for cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease patients. I use a variety of statistical and computational methods including biophysical modeling and graph theory.
