Harish is a highly curious student, with a long term vision in understanding the deep philosophical problems such as how the brain encodes the ‘reality’ i.e., the concepts of space and time, the mind-body duality, the SELF, and consciousness. He is currently pursuing his PhD titled Exploring the functional role of neural oscillations in temporal processing, jointly funded by CEA and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 under Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (NUMERICS PhD 2019-22) in the Cognition and Brain Dynamics Team under a joint guidance of Sophie HERBST and Virginie van WASSENHOVE. His PhD work aims to deepen our understanding of the endogenous nature of slow neural oscillations (delta/theta bands) and their role in temporal processing. As a preliminary step, he is analyzing the existing MEG data recorded previously from the team by applying different methods and later will investigate how such endogenous oscillations mediate timing when a temporal structure is imposed by sensory inputs (rhythmic and non-rhythmic), by conducting behavioral and MEG experiments.
