My research project
Neuromodulation of wake and sleep
Sleep is both mysterious in its functions and distinctive in its characteristics - my research aims to draw a line between the two via targeted modulation of ongoing brain activity in humans. The over-arching goal here is to optimally perturb or enhance the EEG rhythms which distinguish different states of vigilance. If the composite electrical oscillations of sleep may be selectively modulated, their respective roles in brain maintenance may be more readily elucidated.
