Lab's Research

Our lab’s research vision is to perform cross-disciplinary research combining engineering, physics, and machine-learning approaches that are motivated by questions grounded in neurobiology. This will enable us to go beyond the traditional boundaries in order to understand how does the brain implements cognition.

Our research program’s priority areas include:

  • development of multi-modal (e.g., functional MRI, diffusion MRI, EEG) and multi-scale Bayesian framework, referred to as Dynamic Causal Modelling, to characterise brain network dynamics and how these dynamics reorganise with different brain pathologies;

  • use of classical psychedelics (e.g. LSD and Psilocybin) in combination with computational modelling to understand neural mechanisms underlying altered states of consciousness;

  • development of neuroscience-inspired artificial intelligence schemes (e.g. active inference) to understand how parts of the brain (e.g. prefrontal cortex and cingulate cortex) perform decision-making.
