Perception, thoughts and reality are all shaped through the brain. Daily interactions can impact and change its structure. Knowing how adaptable the brain can be has helped us understand how to change habits, choose our own thoughts and improve our overall well-being. The experience the brain provides is unique to every individual and for some, this experience can be extremely challenging. Abnormalities in the neural mechanisms are related to symptoms experienced by individuals living with mental-illness in addition to cognitive difficulties.
Electrophysiology is a tool which allows researchers to observe neural communication at various scales, in real-time. My main research interests involve using this tool to understand neural circuitry and communication.
During recordings, the brains chemistry can be altered through pharmacology, non-invasive brain stimulation, behavioural instructions and more. Observing a changing brain in such highly controlled conditions can help us understand the principles underlying neural signalling.
