Research interests

The main research method of Alexander Sorokin is electroencephalography (EEG). He has used it to describe clinically relevant EEG patterns of neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as for visual and speech perception research. He has investigated auditory processing from the pre-attentive level up to attention-shifting using a multi-feature paradigm that contrasts speech and non-speech sounds as well as human and non-human novel sounds. His other projects include introduction of a comprehensive diagnostic protocol for autism spectrum disorders and study of oxidative stress in autism.
