We focus on the development of instrumentation systems and on the application of different signal processing techniques to the study of brain activity in distinct physiological and clinical contexts. In particular, we acquire and/or process electrophysiological brain signals through invasive and superficial electrodes (i.e. local fields potentials, electroencephalography, etc) in order to extract relevant information of associated functional mechanisms or to assist diagnostic and treatment procedures.
Sleep rhythms: physiological and functional aspects. Enhancement of sleep rhythms by external stimulation: sensory and electrical. Alteration of sleep by pathological conditions: stress, epilepsy.
Seizure prediction and transition to ictal states Epileptogenic and ictogenic processes Epileptic biomarkers: high frecuency oscillations (HFO), epileptic spikes, seizures
Brain Computer Interfaces
Neurofeedback: cognitive and pathological context
