My research aims to further our understanding of the neural signatures of movement execution and movement imagination to facilitate human motor plasticity. To this end I use a suit of neuroimaging techniques. My key method is mobile and high-density EEG, but I also use MEG, f/MRI, fNIRS, and simultaneous EEG-fMRI and EEG-fNIRS recordings. Moreover, I applied EEG-based neurofeedback, fMRI-based neurofeedback and tDCS to modulate neural activity.
