Electric Fields
Of The Brain


Welcome to the Human Neuroscience Lab (HNL) website

Theoretical and experimental research at the Human Neuroscience Lab (HNL) at University of California Irvine is focused on the integrative function of the brain in cognition. Our working hypothesis is that cognition involves the interaction between local processes in specific regions of the cortex and global brain networks. We carry out experimental studies using EEG, MEG, TMS, and fMRI on visual and auditory perception and attention, and we use volume conduction and dynamic models to elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying our findings. Details of our studies can be found in the Publication page and Research Personnel descriptions.
