  • Neural markers of recovery from general anesthesia July 12, 2017

    We conducted a high-density EEG study in healthy human volunteers, and discovered that network efficiency and posterior alpha patterns mark recovery of consciousness and cognitive function, respective, after general anesthesia.  Check out the full article.

  • New consciousness assessment paradigm case study June 14, 2016

    How do we assess unconsciousness in behaviorally unresponsive patients?  In this paper just published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, we conduct case study with a patient with unresponsive wakefulness syndrome, exploring a new within-subject paradigm for answering this question.

  • Network conditions for recovery of consciousness February 3, 2016

    What are the mechanisms for the reversibility of unconsciousness at a network level?  To study this question, we used graph theory to examine the EEG network properties of individuals transitioning into and out of anesthetized states. Our results were just published in Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience.  Check it out!
