Our lab exploits the unique investigative opportunities provided by intracranial electrical recordings during neurosurgical procedures. Using recordings captured from epilepsy patients implanted with subdural and depth electrodes, we investigate the activation of cortical networks during memory encoding and recall.And using the recordings captured during the implantation of deep brain stimulators, we investigate the role of the basal ganglia in learning and decision making.
