Welcome to the Home Page of
Berj L. Bardakjian
I am a Professor in the Department of
Electrical and Computer Engineering,
the Institute of Biomaterials and
Biomedical Engineering, and the
Neuroscience Program (UTNP), at the
University of Toronto. My research deals with the electrical phenomena in the brain. In particular, analysis and modeling of the brain's electrical rhythms to classify brain states, enhance the "desired" ones and abolish the "undesired" ones using cognitive devices. Application areas include epilepsy, consciousness and learning.
