We investigate rhythmic processes in the brain, with a focus on the auditory system.

We test how these brain rhythms can help us cope with the continuous stream of information we receive.

We develop brain stimulation methods to modulate oscillations externally,

to support conditions associated with a malfunctioning of oscillatory activity.
