Gergely Márton, PhD
I. Human-machine interfaces
Dr. Gergely Márton has an MSc degree in electrical engineering and a PhD in neurosciences. He is a researcher, inventor, hardware designer and programmer working on MEMS neural microelectrode arrays and brain-computer interfacing. He is also experimenting with the application of deep learning and advanced image processing in neurosciences and plays touch rugby for even more fun.

Dániel Hillier, PhD
Kinga Tóth, PhD
II. Human epilepsy lab
Kinga works on surgically removed human neocortical tissues from epileptic and non-epileptic patients. She studies the spontaneous synchronous population activity which is generated in the slice-preparations of these specimens. By applying electrophysiological and anatomical methods, she examines the role of perisomatic inhibition in the generation of physiological and pathological activities. CV (hu)

Domonkos Horváth, MSc
Domokos Meszéna, PhD
IV. High-density brain imagingV. Visual systems neuroscience
Domokos recently received his Ph.D. (summa cum laude) at Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics. He joined the group in 2014. He has a keen interest in neural-tissue interfacing using various tools of electrophysiology (in vivo and in vitro) as well as two-photon laser scanning microscopy. Recently he designed a multi-modal setup to record simultaneous intra- and extracellular signals from the same neuron combined with two-photon imaging for generating ground-truth datasets. Outside the lab, he defines himself - among others - as a community person, a guitar player (classical, jazz), and a hobby DSLR photographer. CV

Ágnes Kandrács, PhD
Agnes Kandracs earned her Ph.D. degree at the Roska Tamas Doctoral School of Sciences and Technology at Pazmany Peter Catholic University in Budapest Hungary under the supervision of Dr. Lucia Wittner. She completed her BSc and MSc at the Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics at the Pazmany Peter Catholic University with a specialization in molecular bionics and infobionics engineering. She is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at UlbertLab. Her main research project is the electrophysiological and anatomical examination of cortical neural networks. CV
Bálint File, PhD
VI. Computational modeling
Bálint File has an MSc degree in info-bionic engineering and he is recently finished a PhD in network analysis of complex systems. His research interest focus on the network analysis of large-scale neural interactions and network organization of free word associations. He also likes exploring different cultures and hiking in remote areas., CV
Tibor Nánási, MD, MSc
Tibor received his MD at Semmelweis University and completed his MSc of Medical Biotechnology at Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics. As a bioinformaticist, he specialized on the systems biology of human brain aging and on neural oscillations. His current research is focused on computational approaches combining machine learning and graph-based techniques to analyze gene expression changes in health and disease. Apart from the in silico experiments, he’s an amateur electric guitar player and photographer. CV (hu)
Estilla Zsófia Tóth, MSc
Csaba Köllőd, MSc
Csaba received his master degree in Info-bionics engineering at Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics. His research topic is about Brain-Computer Interfaces supported by Deep Learning technologies. Currently he is developing an application, which will be challenged in the next Cybathlon competition in BCI discipline. He is the manager and the leader programmer of this project.
