Target: The mission of the Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience Lab is to study cognitive phenomena, as forgetting, as well as to study disorders of connectivity and the process of recovery. All this research is motivated to understand the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and the process of brain pasticity after brain damage. Psychiatric disorders such as depresion or traumatic estress disorder are of our interest as well.
Description: The group is formed by neuropsychologists, physicists, engineers, and medical doctors. This interdisciplinary enviroment promotes knowlodge interchange and new questions about the functioning of the human brain.
Functional Neuroimaging methods: MEG and EEG. We use as well MRI (DTI and Volumetry) and genetic information in some of our samples.
Data analysis Techniques: functional conectivity methods; HERMES toolbox; time-frequency methods; complexity and entropy.
Behavioural Methods: in young and old healthy individuals and in individuals with cognitive impairment due to brain damage, dementia, and psychiatric disorders.
Infrastructure: Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and Electroencephalography (EEG).
