 Clinical screening after stroke using MEG & MRI

 

 

Alexander is a graduate student at the Brain & Cognition Lab at the University of Oxford and is supervised by Kia Nobre.

Alexander’s project is aimed at testing attention functions in and developing attention-based biomarkers for individuals with brain lesions and neurodegenerative conditions. His experiments will combine cognitive and psychophysical tasks with non-invasive measures of brain activity using functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG).  In particular, the studies will compare and contrast brain systems and mechanisms supporting temporal and spatial orienting of attention, and investigate how these two types of attention bias interact to guide adaptive perceptions.
