Our research activity relates to the characterisation of irregular-shaped experimental data and more particularly to the implementation of nonlinear signal analysis methods. We focus on the dynamic interdependence between various complex systems.
Our work applies to the analysis of biomedical data (human EEG, EKG, mouse intra-cerebral electrical activity) either to characterise corresponding systems considered separately or to detect and characterise their dynamic interdependences. Currently, our main field of investigation relates to sleep patterns in healthy individuals or patients suffering from various pathologies (depression, sleep apnea syndrome, insomnia, narcolepsy).
We work in collaboration with the ULB-Erasme Hospital Sleep Laboratory (Prof P. Linkowski) and the Electrophysiology Unit of the University of Mons (Prof G. Cheron).
