Cognitive Neurodynamics Laboratory

 

                                  "As long as our brain is a mystery,

                                   the universe, the reflection of the structure of the brain,

                                   will also be a mystery." Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852 – 1934)

 

 

                                                  

 

 

The Cognitive Neurodynamics Laboratory is a research group within the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University. The central goal of  our laboratory is to understand the spatio-temporal dynamics of brain activity as it relates to cognition. Our theoretical and experimental studies focus on the investigation of large-scale networks in the cerebral cortex.

Dr. Steven L. Bressler, Director

 

Dr. Steven L. Bressler is Professor of Complex Systems and Brain Sciences, and Psychology at Florida Atlantic University. He directs the Cognitive Neurodynamics Laboratory in the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences. He received his B.A. from The Johns Hopkins University, his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and his postdoctoral training in the EEG Systems Laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco. He has made substantial contributions to the field of large-scale neural networks in the brain, with papers cited over 7500 times in leading research journals. His papers have been published in Nature (1993), Science (1983, 1987, 2012), and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA (2004). He served on the Board of Governors of INNS from 2009 to 2011, is an Action Editor for Neural Networks, and is on the editorial board of Computational Intelligence and Neuroscience. He has organized or co-organized a number of conferences on large-scale brain networks, including the 2007 NSF Conference on Brain Network Dynamics, the 2009 Symposium on Top-Down Mechanisms of Visual Attention, the 2010 NSF Conference on Neurocognitive  Networks, the 2011 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks, and the 2011 NSF Symposium on From Brains to Machines at IJCNN11.
