Position: Former visiting researcher (2016)
Research while in the Mattingley Lab
I am a visiting researcher working on a collaborative research project supervised by Dr. Tristan Bekinschtein (University of Cambridge) and Professor Mattingley. In this particular project I am using electroencephalography (EEG) in a behavioural setup, to examine the drowsiness-inducing effect of rhythmic auditory and visual stimuli.
- Attention processes in drowsiness
- Effects of drowsiness on cognition
