Ideator, creator, and supreme ruler of the MontiLab.
Vice-ruler of the MontiLab
Working on: Acute-to-chronic structural changes after severe traumatic brain injury
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
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?
