I investigate on the neural coding problem at a network level. I am interested in the mechanisms by which stimuli, behavioral responses (e.g., decisions, performance), and pathological features are encoded in the simultaneous activity of different brain areas sampled at a single-cell (spiking neurons) and neural population scales (intracranial EEG). The focus of my current research is on identifying network dynamics changes prior to epileptic seizures using long-lasting periods of intracranial EEG recordings. To analyze and model neural coding, I combine information-theoretical estimates with non-parametric statistical methods and apply them to intracranial recordings during spontaneous and cognitive task conditions from both non-human primates and epileptic patients.
