PCNGis an interdisciplinary research group engaged in a wide range of studies in normal and clinical subjects. We are also interested in theoretical and foundational issues in the study of brain and mind.
Our main interests include the following:

mechanisms of perceptual rivalry
visual and attentional processing, especially during perceptual rivalry
aberrations of perceptual rivalry in clinical psychiatric groups, especially bipolar disorder
non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, including:
caloric vestibular stimulation (CVS)
techniques closely related to CVS (e.g., galvanic vestibular stimulation,
optokinetic stimulation, neck muscle vibration)
transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
brain stimulation in the treatment of mania, depression and other psychiatric conditions
brain stimulation in the treatment of persistent (chronic) pain states
brain stimulation and experimental neurophilosophy
foundational issues in the scientific study of consciousness
