Sadra Sadeh leads the Computational Lab of Neural Dynamics at Imperial College London. His group develops computational and theoretical platforms to direct neuroscientific research and neurotechnological innovation.
His research contributes to this endeavour through data-constrained computational modelling and theoretical analysis of large-scale neuronal networks. These models help understand the computational mechanisms underlying the operation of networks of neurons, which remains a major challenge in neuroscience due to the complexity of neuronal interactions in the brain. Research in the Lab will bridge the gap between structural connectivity of these networks and their functional properties, emerging at the level of activity dynamics, and enabled by dynamic reorganisation of the network as a result of learning. It ultimately sheds light on the central neuroscience questions, such as the mechanisms of sensorimotor processing and learning in healthy brains, and enables the design of better brain machine interface and therapeutic solutions to brain diseases.
