Dr. Zoltan Nadasdy is a research scientist whose main interest is to understand the fundamental mechanisms of neural coding, in particular the relationship between intrinsic oscillations and spike patterns. Currently, Dr. Nadasdy is working in the field of human electrophysiology, developing computational tools for studying grid cell dynamics, propagation of electric fields in the brain and for seizure prediction. His empirical research areas include the neural substrates of human spatial navigation, neuro-hemodynamic coupling, neural correlates of visual perception, and epilepsy. He developed these projects while completing his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Rutgers University and during his post-doctoral training in Electrophysiology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and at the California Institute of Technology. His theoretical and computational neuroscience work expands to spike sequences and their role in memory function.
