Sinergia Consortium Brain Communication Pathways

Renaud Marquis

Renaud Marquis was born in 1987 in Delémont, Switzerland. He received a B.Sc. degree in Psychology in Lausanne in 2010 and an M.Sc. degree in Neuroscience in Geneva in 2013. In his Master thesis, he used high-density EEG and source localization to study body perception under the supervision of Prof. Alan Pegna. In 2017, he obtained a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience of Lausanne University Hospital under the supervision of Prof. Bogdan Draganski and Dr. Ferath Kherif. His Ph.D. work focused on imaging of deep brain nuclei using functional MRI, diffusion MRI and multi-parameter mapping, and how information processing in cortico-subcortical loops is affected by Parkinson’s disease. He then joined the Brain Communication Pathways Sinergia Consortium and Prof. Serge Vulliémoz’s group as a postdoctoral researcher at the EEG and Epilepsy Unit in the Department of Medicine, University Hospital of Geneva, where he investigates functional connectivity in epilepsy using simultaneous scalp-intracranial EEG recordings and direct electrical stimulation.
