Research summary

Researchers have learned a lot about individual regions of the brain. But the neural mechanisms that enable communication between these distinct areas remain something of a mystery. As Canada Research Chair in Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Neuroimaging, Dr. Karim Jerbi aims to solve this mystery.

He is working to improve our understanding of complex brain network dynamics. In particular, he and his research team are trying to shed light on the neuronal mechanisms of these networks and their role in cognition. To this end, they are using a unique combination of invasive and non-invasive brain measurements and state-of-the-art neuroimaging, signal processing and artificial intelligence methods. Ultimately, their findings will improve our understanding of brain network function and the role its breakdown plays in disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
