Research Statement

Neural activity is not only driven by external factors such as sensory stimuli, but to a large extent generated spontaneously. This spontaneous brain activity displays a coherent spatio-temporal structure and interacts with stimulus-driven activity in complex ways. I study spontaneous brain activity and its effect on stimulus-evoked responses using a variety of techniques, ranging from fMRI to in vivo electrophysiology.
