Professor Uta Noppeney

Chair in Computational Neuroscience

School of Psychology

Professor Noppeney investigates how the human brain integrates information across the senses to interact effectively with our complex dynamic environment. To characterize the neural and computational mechanisms, her team combines psychophysics, functional imaging (fMRI & EEG/MEG) and computational modelling.

Uta Noppeney is director of the Computational Neuroscience ...

Dr Johanna Zumer

Research Fellow in Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging

School of Psychology

Dr Zumer [j.zumer (at) bham.ac.uk] is interested in quantifying the neuronal mechanisms underlying perception, attention and sensory integration by measuring local activity and inter-regional brain connectivity.  She examines the spatiotemporal profile of both neural (MEG/EEG) and haemodynamic (functional MRI) data over a variety of experimental manipulations, to aid the understanding of ...

Alexandra Krugliak

School of Psychology

Alexandra's main research interest is how the brain represents information that is processed by different sensory modalities and how it combines this information into a unified percept. In Alexandra's doctoral research she is investigating interactions between the auditory and visual modalities in the perceptual processing hierarchy using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and ...

Joana Leitao

Joana is a visiting PhD student who started at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen, Germany, in the Cognitive Neuroimaging Group. She has been a member of the University of Birmingham's Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging Group since 2013.

Joana uses concurrent Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to investigate the role of the parietal cortex in multisensory integration and visual processing.

Dr Remi Gau

Remi is a visiting PhD student from the International Max Planck Research Graduate School of Neural and Behavioural Sciences in Tuebingen, Germany. 

His work concentrates on how prior information affects multi-sensory integration. The first part of his PhD looked at how contextual incongruency affects the fusion audio-visual speech information using psychophysics and fMRI. Using seven tesla high-definition fMRI, he am now investigating how attention modulates the fusion of auditory and visual information in different layers of the cerebral cortex.
