Brain Rhythms and Cognition Research groups

The human brain processes and analyzes complex information within fractions of a second, overcoming both input ambiguity and noise. In our group, we use time-resolved neuroimaging techniques (MEG and EEG) to understand the computational dynamics and architecture of language processing.

The temporal structure of the surrounding environment provides cues that help the brain optimally sample external stimuli and orchestrate appropriate responses.

The Proactive group explores how the brain encodes visual, auditory and linguistic rhythms by focusing on neural oscillatory activity. Based on this approach we investigate predictive processing in language comprehension, music processing and visual and attentional processes.

These research lines merge into the more general goal of detecting oscillatory neural components that lead to the development of language disorders across the lifespan.
