Investigation of the mechanisms of sensory information processing by the analysis of the spontaneous and evoked electrical activity of the brain in healthy individuals, in normal aging,  and in various neuropsychiatric disorders (”minimal cognitive deficit”, early Alzheimer’s disease). Application of the mathematical tools of nonlinear dynamics and graph-theory to the analysis of the electroencephalogram and event-related potentials.
