Jay records human intracranial activity and physiological markers of arousal during immersive virtual reality experiences to understand the neural network dynamics that mediate threat processing and response. Using state-of-the-art computational methods, Jay hopes to identify neurophysiological signatures of inappropriate fear reactivity that can be used as targets for deep brain stimulation treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
