Synchrony and Oscillations

Synchronous oscillations are a ubiquituous phenomenon in the brain. They are observed in almost every brain region and have been associated with almost all cognitive behaviors.  Indeed, oscillations are disrupted in many neuropsychiatric diseases, including schizophrenia and OCD.  Our research aims to understand what generates synchronous oscillations in the brain as well as how they impact cognition.
