The lab's main interest is in understanding brain-behavior interactions in the context of pain, sensory-motor integration and high functions. The lab's aim is at bridging the fields of basic neuroscience and clinical neurophysiology to advance our understanding of how the brain functions in health and in pain and sensory-motor diseases.
The lab is equipped with advanced neurophysiological technologies including:
- A state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques such as structural and functional MRI.
- 64 electrodes electroencephalography (EEG) system for EEG and evoked potentials recordings.
- 8 channels electromyography (EMG system) for recording the electrical characteristics of the muscle tissue and the response of nerves to electrical stimulation.
- Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and a neuronavigation system used for non-invasive brain stimulation in order to measure activity and function of specific brain circuits in humans.
- Sensory psychophysical measure tools including the TSA and the PATHWAY advanced systems used for pain and sensory evaluation.
