Julia Sophia Crone, Ph.D.

Duchess of the MontiLab

Working on: Exploring alterations in functional network organization underlying impaired consciousness using graph theoretical approaches, dynamic causal modeling, and other fun stuff

 

Joel Frohlich, Ph.D

Crown Prince of the Electroencephalogram

Working on: 1) Can we use derive biomarkers of consciousness from EEG in patients with disorders of consciousness?  2) Why does the Angelman syndrome EEG look like EEG from coma patients? 3) What is the relationship between brain complexity and complexity in other natural self-organizing systems?
