    Research Project Title

    Intracranial recordings in the exploration of functional networks in epileptic patients

    University Program

    Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neurosciences

    Research Interests

    My postdoctoral research is aimed at a better understanding of brain functions associated with cognitive treatment and emotions using intracranial recordings employed in the pre-surgical assessment of epileptic patients. Olivier Boucher is interested in, among other things, the functions of the insular cortex as well as the medial temporal lobe.
