Perception, Cognition and Action

Professor Howard Bowman

Professor Howard Bowman

Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience

Professor Bowman applies the methods of Cognitive Neuroscience, especially EEG and Neural Modelling, to understanding a spectrum of Cognitive phenomena, including conscious perception, temporal attention and subliminal search. Much of his work focuses on verifying the simultaneous Type/ Serial Token theory of temporal attention and working memory encoding, which he developed with Brad Wyble.

Dr Magda Chechlacz

Dr Magda Chechlacz

Bridge Fellow

Dr Chechlacz is broadly interested in understanding how variability in the neurochemical, structural and functional organisation of the brain affect cognitive functions and relates to individual differences in human behaviour and in susceptibility to cognitive ageing and mental health problems. Her work combines cognitive assessment of attentional functions with spherical deconvolution ...

Dr Massimiliano (Max) Di Luca

Dr Massimiliano (Max) Di Luca

Lecturer in Computational Neuroscience

Max Di Luca - Research in 60 seconds videoDr Di Luca investigates the mechanisms of human perception using psychophysical methods and computational modeling. The goal of his research is to understand how the brain progressively builds the perception of the environment by picking up information through actions and by integrating sensations over time.

Dr Davinia Fernández-Espejo

Dr Davinia Fernández-Espejo

Lecturer

Davinia Fernández-Espejo’s main goal is to understand how the brain supports consciousness and what goes wrong for patients to become entirely unaware after severe brain injury. She uses techniques such as MRI (structural and functional), tDCS, and behavioural approaches in both healthy volunteers and patients with a disorder of consciousness to test hypotheses about ...

Dr Joseph Galea

Dr Joseph Galea

Senior Lecturer

Dr Galea is broadly interested in motor control. This ranges from the neural correlates of motor learning to stroke rehabilitation. At present, he is particularly interested in how reward/punishment influences our actions and can be used to alter the speed at which our motor system learns or retains new movements.

Professor Chris Miall

Professor Chris Miall

Professor of Motor Neuroscience

Professor Miall has been studying sensory motor control for about 30 years, from his PhD in locusts, to crayfish, primates and for most of the 15 years, working on human motor control. He is particularly interested in the role of the cerebellum, in motor learning and in predictive control.

Professor Uta Noppeney

Professor Uta Noppeney

Chair in Computational Neuroscience

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 the Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging Group combines psychophysics, functional imaging (fMRI & EEG/MEG) and computational modelling.

 

Uta Noppeney is director of the Com ...

Professor Jane E. Raymond

Professor Jane E. Raymond

Professor of Visual Cognition

Professor Raymond is a visual perception/cognition specialist with a wide range of interests in how humans use and respond to complex visual information. She conducted the seminal work on the “Attention Blink”, a finding that launched intensive interest in labs around the world on how selective attention operates over time. Her work has included studies on visual attention across time ...

Dr Andrew Schofield

Dr Andrew Schofield

Senior Lecturer
Deputy Director of Education (Quality Assurance), College of Life and Environmental Sciences

Andrew Schofield's primary research is on functional aspects of the visual perception with an emphasis on textures, surfaces and shape. He also has interests in the effects of ageing on visual perception and the role of cortical hyper-excitability in abnormal visual functioning. He also builds computational models of human vision and designs computer vision algorithms.

Dr Johanna Zumer

Dr Johanna Zumer

Marie Curie Intra-European Fellow

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 ...
