Research interests

My main research focus is to understand how Non-invasive Brain Stimulation tools can be used to help child and adolescent psychiatric patients. For that, in ABC Brain Lab, we aim to employ up-to-date electrical stimulation techniques and adjunt tools (MRI, EEG, computational models, eye-tracking) to investigate optimal clinical approaches to this target population.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

  • Non-invasive Brain Stimulation
  • Neurofeedback
  • EEG
  • Behavioral measures
  • MRI and computational models
  • Eye-tracking
