Daniele Ortu. Research Assistant Professor of Behavior Analysis
My primary interests are real time measures of brain activity, specifically Electroencephalography and Event Related Potentials and how they relate to basic learning principles. My EEGLaboratory is equipped with a state of the art Brain Vision EEG data collection system with high density 128 electrodes, The system is capable of measuring real time brain activity at the millisecond temporal resolution and allow source localization. I typically programEEG/ERP experiments via the software E-Prime, considered to be the gold standard in stimulus presentation in Behavioral Neuroscience research. I have extensive experience in EEG data collection, data processing and statistical analyses using Matlab and the Neuroscanand Curry 7 software packages. I am especially interested in single subject EEG data analysis to be applied in both basic and applied settings.
