Areas of Interest
The main interest of the Borjigin lab is to understand the neurological basis of consciousness in normal and abnormal brain states in both human and non-human animals using signal processing tools. We also focus on the brain states during sleep, effect of brain diseases such stroke and epilepsy on cardiovascular function or impact of cardiovascular disease on the brain (heart-brain coupling), all with the goal of identifying novel non-invasive biomarkers for therapies.
