Dr Alexandra Krugliak

University position

Research Associate


Department of Psychology



Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience


I am interested how the human brain processes natural objects: Are there any, and if so what are the stages of objects processing? How is information from different sensory modalities combined into a multisensory object experience? How and when is information about prior experience with the object available in the brain and how does it influence the object's neural representations and subsequently human behavior?

Currently, I am a postdoc at the University of Cambridge, where I am investigating how object processing and object neural representation is influenced by context/environment, both in the laboratory and in real-life settings. I am using non-invasive brain imaging methods like EEG and fMRI, online experiments, computational modelling and augmented reality.

Research Focus


Object Recognition

Audiovisual Perception

Clinical conditions

No direct clinical relevance


Behavioural analysis
