Research interests

I am interested in how the brain combines sensory input from multiple sources. How is communication between modalities achieved, and under what conditions is this communication most effective? How is perception within one modality affected by input from another, and what effect does sensory deprivation (e.g. deafness) have on the integration process? I tackle these and other questions by exploring the wealth of data available from high-density EEG recordings.
