Research Interests

Basic brain science research with specific focus on neural substrates of human movement both in normal and pathological populations. Clinical research focused on sports-related traumatic brain injuries using advanced Virtual Reality and brain Imaging (fMRI, EEG) tools


  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • Sports-related concussion
  • Psychology of Athletic Injuries
  • Application of Virtual Reality for Medical Rehabilitation
  • Neural bases postural control
  • EEG correlates of cognitive functions
  • Functional MRI in assessment of concussion
