Congratulations to Angela Renton
Wednesday 13 December 2017
This video by Angela won the best video category in QBI's 2017 Art in Neuroscience competition.
The video shows all the eye movements (rings) and cursor movements (squares) of participants in a recent study moving cursors to eight cued locations on a display.
Congratulations to Cooper Smout
Monday 13 November 2017
Well done to Cooper for being awarded a prestigious and competitive 2018 Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship. Next year, he will use the award funding to visit the Predictive Brain Lab, based at the Donders Institute in Nijmegen, Netherlands and headed by Dr. Floris de Lange. Here, he will run a forward encoding MEG study investigating the interaction between attention and prediction in the human brain.
Congratulations to our Honours students
