About Me

Research Interests

My research interest is somatosensory processing and motor control, in particular itch and scratch. Using functional neuroimaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG), and brain stimulation devices such as transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), I investigate the cerebral mechanism of itch and scratch in humans.
