Cognitive Neurophysiology Research Group

Research conducted by members of the Cognitive Neurophysiology Research Group at New York University is aimed at bridging the fields of neuroscience and clinical neurology to advance our understanding of the human brain in health and disease. To accomplish this goal, our team consists of scientists and clinicians working in close collaboration. The laboratory also maintains collaborative relationships with other basic science departments within the university and beyond.

The Cognitive Neurophysiology Research Group is part of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center in the Department of Neurology at New York University School of Medicine. The group is also closely affiliated with the Multiomodal Imaging Laboratory at the University of Califonia at San Diego.

We are using a variety of state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques, such as functional and structural MRI, magnetoencephalography, cortical stimulation mapping and intra-cranial EEG.
