Techniques

Our members have experience with a wide range of neuroscientific techniques, including neuropsychological testing, psychophysics and fMRI. We have particular strengths in the use of EEG, TMS and Transcranial Electric Stimulation (a weak current applied to the scalp), in addition to measures of human behaviour (e.g. response times, response errors, and eye movements) and physiological measures (e.g. galvanic skin response and heart rate). We test neurologically normal individuals, special populations (e.g. people with synesthesia) and people with expertise or acquired skills (e.g. dancers, musicians, athletes), as well as people with brain damage (e.g. neglect or split-brain patients), psychiatric diagnoses (e.g. schizophrenia), sensory deficits (e.g. visual and hearing impairments) or other disorders (e.g. dyslexia or autism).
