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 ...
