Profile & Research Interests

Stefan Everling focuses on the cognitive control of eye movements and visual attention, using both high-density single neuron recordings in awake behaving nonhuman primates as well as fMRI in humans and nonhuman primates. His recent studies on the homology and dynamics of resting state networks in humans and NHPs opens up the possibility of doing resting state studies in NHPs across a whole variety of interventions that are not possible in humans. He leads the development of the nonhuman primate facility at the Centre for Brain and Mind at Western, serving as the Director of this facility since 2003.
