During my PhD with John Gruzelier at University of London, I used transcranial magnetic stimulation to probe for the plastic effects of neurofeedback, showing for the first time cortical excitability changes directly after a training session (Ros et al 2010, Eur J Neuro). For my postdoc I worked with Ruth Lanius at University of Western Ontario, uncovering a neurofeedback protocol that positively correlated with reductions in mind-wandering, together with enhanced functional connectivity in a key cognitive control network (Ros et al 2013, Neuroimage). This led to the first translational study investigating its impact on patients with PTSD, revealing a positive effect on well-being and a plastic modulation of salience/default-mode networks (Kluetsch et al 2014, Acta Psych Scandinavica). I am presently based at the University of Geneva, where in collaboration with Patrik Vuilleumier, I am investigating the impact of neurofeedback on neurological and psychiatric disorders (Ros et al 2014, Front Human Neuro), within the framework of critical brain dynamics (Ros et al 2016, Cereb Cortex).
