  • Mr Jascha Achterberg
    As a part of the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit I am studying the neuronal dynamics of complex problem solving and computations underlying general intelligence in brains and machines. I am especially interested in rapid One-Shot learning an...
  • Michael Anderson Professor Michael Anderson
    Dr. Anderson focuses on fundamental mechanisms of memory, attention, and cognitive control, and their interaction. A central observation is that memory, like other aspects of cognition and behaviour, poses problems of control. Dr. Anderson uses ...
  • Moataz Assem Moataz Assem
    I study the precise anatomical and functional organization of domain-general brain regions using mutlimodal MRI techniques of the Human Connectome Project (HCP) and invasive electrophysiology data from human patients. Domain-general or Multiple-...
  • Paula Banca Dr Paula Banca
    My research is aimed at understanding the neural mechanisms underlying action control with the purpose of developing more effective treatments in psychiatric diseases. I am interested in compulsive disorders, particularly Obsessive-Compulsive Diso...
  • Lydia Barnes
    I'm interested in how a limited physical system like the brain supports flexible focus on many different tasks. Humans are remarkable for their ability to generalise from what they know to new situations. We now know that a widespread 'multiple-de...
  • Sanne de Wit Dr Sanne de Wit
    Whilst our actions are often goal-directed, slips of action reveal that automatic, or habitual, mechanisms can take over. Although the concepts of goal-directed action and habits are well-grounded in folk psychology, most empirical research so far...
  • Ms Nadene Dermody
    Despite the wealth of information available to us at any one time, we are able to navigate through these sensory-laden environments in a purposeful way. How do our brains select what is relevant to our current goal, direct our behaviour accordingl...
  • Dr Alejandro Ezquerro-Nassar
    Despite our intuitions to the contrary, we have no direct access to the physical properties of the world around us. Instead, we rely on fragile brain processes to interpret and navigate our complex environment. Often taken for granted, our ability...
  • Runhao Lu
    A distributed "multiple-demand" (MD) network across the frontoparietal brain regions is thought to be crucial for human intelligent behaviours because of its incredible function to flexibly and adaptively process task-relevant information. Althoug...
  • Dorian Minors
    My current research interests lie in the neural mechanisms that underpin intelligent behaviour. Many relatively unsophisticated animals appear to show glimpses of the highest orders of cognitive ability, once thought to be out of reach of such tin...
  • Dr Davide Nardo
    I investigate the cognitive and neural mechanisms of memory, emotional, and thought control in humans (both psychiatric populations and healthy controls) using behavioural, psychophysiological, and functional and structural neuroimaging techniques.
  • Dr Kamen Tsvetanov
    Dr. Tsvetanov is a Brain Non-Clinical Postdoctoral Fellow in cognitive neuroscience of ageing. The central goal of his research is to obtain a better understanding of the complex relationship between human brain dynamics and cognition in healthy a...
  • Dr Alexandra Woolgar
    We study the neural basis for flexible cognitive control, underpinning the incredible human capacity for diverse and flexible behaviour. Our research uses multivariate analysis of fMRI, E/MEG, and combined TMS-fMRI data. We are interested in ho...
