Siddharth (Sid) Sivakumar is a graduate student with a B.S. in Biochemistry from CWRU. His research interests include large-scale neural synchronization, sleep and consciousness, heart rate variability, and the timing and dynamics of network-level neural activity. His previous studies focused on autonomic imbalance in generalized epilepsy, and standing EEG waves during non-REM sleep (Google Scholar Citations). He is trained in event and feature detection of physiologic signals, big data analysis, and computational modeling of neural systems. He intends to pursue an MD/PhD in Neuroscience continuing his investigations into brain-wide neural synchronization and network activity in diseased states. In the summer of 2017, he will begin MD/PhD training in Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis, continuing his investigations into macroscopic neural circuits and network activity in diseased states.

Nathan Kodama is a senior undergraduate student completing a B.S. in Physics. His research interests include spontaneous brain activity, information processing in the neocortex, and micro- to macroscopic timing mechanisms in networks and circuits. His previous work is diverse (Google Scholar Citations) ranging from pharmacological therapeutics in Alzheimer's to network stability in epilepsy. He is trained in traditional and modern electrophysiological techniques and multichannel signal processing. He intends to pursue a PhD in Physics, Engineering, or Neuroscience continuing his interest in information systems and multi-scale problems.

Tianyi (Diana) Feng is a senior undergraduate student completing a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in Cognitive Science. Her research interests include neural circuit behavior and dynamics, the origin of cognition in cortical networks, associative memory, and language processing. Previously, she has conducted research in spontaneous cortical activity (SfN Poster), as well as co-speech gestures. With trainings in electrophysiology, signal processing, and behavioral studies, she hopes to pursue a PhD in neuroscience with a focus on human behavior and cognition.

James Ullett is a senior undergraduate student completing a B.S. in Physics. His research interests include information coding in the cortex, modeling dynamics of neural networks, and applications of graph theory. He is trained in spike sorting, computational modeling of static and dynamic systems, and pattern recognition algorithms. He intends to pursue a career in the realm of signal processing and human-computer interaction.

Roberto is the principal investigator.
