Jerbi, Karim


Karim Jerbi is Canada Research Chair in Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Brain Imaging. He's head of the Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (CoCo Lab) at the Department of Psychology of the University of Montreal. Karim Jerbi is director of the first Quebec-wide research cluter on Neuro-AI (UNIQUE - FRQNT Research cluster - launched in 2019). He's associate director of the Unité de Neuroimagerie Fonctionnelle (UNF) at CRIUGM. He's also deputy director of the magnetoencephalography (MEG) imaging facility at the University of Montreal and member of multiple research centers and networks (BRAMS, CERNEC, CRIUGM, CRIUSSM, CRM, QBIN, etc.). 

Training >> Karim Jerbi holds a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience and Brain Imaging (University of Paris VI, France) and a degree in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering (University of Karlsruhe, Germany).

Research expertise

Karim Jerbi heads the Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (CoCo Lab) at UdeM. His research lies at the cross-roads between computational, systems and cognitive neuroscience, with an emphasis on exploring biological and artificial network dynamics. The research he leads seeks to elucidate the role of large-scale brain network dynamics in normal cognitive processes and their breakdown in psychiatric disorders. To this end, his research relies on a combination of invasive (intracranial electroencephalography, iEEG) and non-invasive (EEG and MEG) recordings, combined with advanced signal processing and artificial intelligence tools, including machine learning.

Karim Jerbi is interested in inter-disciplinary research questions such as the neural basis of attention, decision-making, states of consciousness and sleep, and has a keen interest in various forms of interaction between art, creativity and neuroscience.
