After three years as the head of the technical support team within the Cognitive and System Department of the Institute of Neuroscience of the UCL, I started a PhD. The general objective of my research is to develop a novel approach based on transcranial focused ultrasound (TFUS) and on the combination of TFUS with electroencephalography (EEG) to characterize and to investigate the interdependencies between the different brain regions involved in human pain perception.

Research projects

Non-invasive brain modulation using transcranial focused ultrasound (TFUS)

Investigators : Julien Lambert, Christophe Craeye, André Mouraux. The general objective of this research project is to develop a novel non-invasive neuromodulation approach based on transcranial focused ultrasound (TFUS) and on the combination of TFUS with EEG to study the cortical processes...

Pinprick-evoked brain potentials to assess central sensitization in humans

I’m particularly interested in nociception-induced central nervous system plasticity in both acute and persistent pain conditions. In my research I focus predominantly on brain functioning as investigated by non-invasive functional neuroimaging techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG). The...
