Mariana Babo-Rebelo

Email : mariana.babo-rebelo@ens.fr

Mariana defended her PhD in May 2017 and is staying a bit further as a post-doc to complete her wokr on whether and how neural responses to heartbeats influence the orientation of spontaneous thoughts, in both MEG and iEEG data.

Stephen Whitmarsh

Email : stephen.whitmarsh@ens.fr

Stephen is a post-doctoral fellow who joined the group in December 2015. Stephen works on the links between the slow fluctuations of mind-wandering, cortical excitability, and the gastric rhythm, using MEG.

Anne Buot

Anne is a research engineer, testing and improving all the methods we are using.

Kayeon Kim

Email: kayeonlo@gmail.com

Kayeon is a post-doctoral fellow since October 2015. She tests whether spiking activity in human neurons is modulated by heartbeats during the resting state, in single and multi-unit recordings obtained in patients.

Ignacio Rebollo

Email : ignacio.rebollo@ens.fr

Ignacio began his PhD in September 2015. He studies how the spontaneous and rhythmical activity of the stomach impacts neural dynamics and functional connectivity in fMRI, and how it influences behavior.

Damiano Azzalini

Email : damiano.azzalini@gmail.com

Damiano is enrolled in the PhD programme of the Ecole des Neurosciences de Paris. Since September 2016, he explores the link between neural responses to heartbeats and subjective preferences in decision making, using MEG.

Diego Candia

Email : diego.candia@ens.fr

Diego arrived in March 2017, to test whether measures of brain-heart communication can improve the diagnotic of non-communicating patients, in collaboration with Steven Laureys in Liège (Belgium).


Nicolai Wolpert

Email: nwolpert@uni-osnabrueck.de

Nicolai begun his PhD in September 2017. He tests whether the slow spontaneous fluctutations in visual perception are related to the gastric rhythm.
