Biografía

Vicente is a neuroscientist with a system-level perspective of brain function, working to understand the mechanisms of consciousness and attention using multimodal brain imaging and computational models in health and disease. He obtained his degree in philosophy at the Universidad de Chile and his Master’s and Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. He also worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Universidad de Chile and in the Brain and Mind Centre at The University of Sydney. His work focuses on multiscale information processing in the brain and the modulatory role of the ascending arousal system in shaping brain complex activity and behavior. Vicente’s research includes different physiological measures to understand their contributions to the dynamics emerging from the interaction between the brain, body, and environment. To address this, he combines scalp and intracranial EEG, structural and functional MRI, magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), audition, pupil diameter, and computational modeling.
