The primary goal of Karim Jerbi’s research is to advance our knowledge of brain function and dysfunction. In particular, one of the main questions he is interested in is how distinct neuronal populations exchange information and coordinate their activity across brain networks. He addresses reseach questions in this area by measuring changes in local and long-distance neuronal synchronization both during active tasks and during resting states. A key aspect of this multi-disciplinary research is the use of several complementary recording techniques namely Magnetoencephalography (MEG), intracranial Electroencephalography (iEEG) and microelectrode recordings in humans and to bridge the gap between electrophysiological and neuroimaging studies of neural network dynamics.
