Sleep: A Privileged Window into the Neuroscience of Meditation.


Dr Dentico is a computational neuroscientist and MD interested in modeling the neural underpinnings of conscious experience. Her approach to the study of emotion and cognition rests on a neurophysiological background, acquired by investigating the interplay between the homeostatic regulation of REM sleep and body temperature at the level of the hypothalamus. This composite theoretical and empirical background is the foundation of her investigation of the neuroscience of meditation and wellbeing. The  long-term goal is the implementation of complexity measures for multimodal neuroimaging data to study brain nonlinear dynamics underlying sleep and waking experience and ultimately to explore how phenomenology can arise from causal and informational interactions in the embodied brain.
