Research while in the Mattingley Lab

Title: The Enhancement of Sensory Perception through Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation

How does noise influence central mechanisms of sensory information processing in humans? This intriguing question is the overarching motivation for the present research project.



Research interests
  • Stochastic-Resonance
