Welcome to the Computational Sensorimotor Neuroscience lab which is part of the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences (Faculty of Health Science) and the Faculty of Arts & Science and is hosted within the Centre for Neuroscience Studies at Queen's University. I am also cross-appointed to the School of Computing, the Department of Psychology as well as to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. In my lab, we investigate how sensory signals are transformed into perceptual experiences and actions. Specifically, we are interested in how noise and variability impact sensory-motor processing in  the brain. The main related research topics investigated in the lab are:

  1. Visuomotor transformations and multi-sensory integration for reaching and eye movements
  2. Reconstruction of 3D space from binocular vision for perception and action
  3. Dynamics of head-unrestrained eye movements and their interactions
  4. Noise, variability, stochastic behavior and Bayesian processes
In my lab, we take a computational approach to sensorimotor neuroscience. Computational modeling is essential for our understanding of neural mechanisms because they formalize hypotheses and make new testable predictions to conduct exciting research lines. However, to make the best out of a model, it needs constant experimental testing and feedback. Therefore, we combine the following experimental and modeling techniques:
The ultimate goal of all the research conducted in my lab is to help patients with neurological diseases. This first requires a fundamental understanding of brain function. We then aim to propose new frameworks for brain dysfunction, diagnosis techniques, rehabilitation tools and/or behavioral strategies that improve the patients’ quality of life.
