I am studying the role of neural oscillations during goal-directed spatial navigation within familiar (virtually simulated) environments. By employing magnetoencephalography (MEG) and analysing the millisecond temporal resolution brain signals that span different frequencies, we hope to elucidate 1) the relationship between neural oscillatory activity (e.g. theta frequency) and spatial parameters like Euclidian and path distances; 2) the on-going neural interactions between brain regions (of which the human hippocampi, parietal and prefrontal areas will be of particular interest) and their local oscillatory activity.
(When not trying to ‘spatial navigate’) I continue to collaborate with Joachim Gross (CCNi, Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology, University of Glasgow, UK) and colleagues at the Brain Sciences Center (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis VAMC, USA).
