Job description

As a neurophysiologist I am interested in electrophysiological correlates of brain functions studied by intracranial electrodes in epileptic patients. I am exploring relationship between brain activity and specific events of various cognitive tasks. To do so, I analyse the event-related potentials evoked by presentation of stimuli. Recently, I also started to study neurophysiological mechanisms of emotions and feelings and electrophysiological correlates of interoception.

Supervisor of doctoral students:

  • Mgr. Jakub Kraus
  • Mgr. Lenka Jurkovičová


  • Ing. Pavel Jurák, CSc. et al., Department of Medical Signals (MEDISIG), Institute of Scientific Instruments of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Brno, Czech Republic

I studied for my MD degree (General Medicine) at Medical Faculty, Masaryk University Brno, where I also completed my Ph.D. with thesis "Electrophysiological response in oddball paradigm studied by intracranial methods" under supervision of Prof. MUDr. Miloslav Kukleta, CSc. I worked for about 16 years as an assistant at Physiology Department, Medical Faculty MU, Brno. I am now a post-doc researcher at CEITEC MU.
