Profile

Is an electrophysiologist researching on the neuronal basis of sensorimotor execution and its cognitive control processes. Standard electrophysiological tools such as single unit recording, simultaneous multiple cell recording, local field potential recording and electrocorticography are my friends (and a duct tape and an aluminium foil of course). Being addicted to R and LaTeX, dreads horrible commercial office softwares and other meddlesome programming languages.
