Description of scientific work:
  • Medorian is passionate about the dynamics of neuronal structures (temporal relation between spikes), as well as understanding the communication between various neural circuits (utilizing the LFP). Also, of interest to Medorian is the understanding of object recognition's signature in EEG data collected from human subjects. The goal of his research is to understand how the brain processes information in distributed neural circuits.
