How does the brain transform visual information into a more abstract meaningful representation that supports cognition? The research I have been undertaking investigates how information about meaningful objects is represented and processed in the brain. A key aspect of this research is centred around how information about visual objects develops across time, and how the responses of different brain regions reflect different forms of conceptual knowledge. In addition, I'm also interested in the mechanisms by which these different brain regions interact culminating in meaningful object representations.
I completed my PhD at the CSLB in February 2011 under the supervision of Professor L K Tyler. Before commencing my PhD I obtained an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of York in 2007, and a BSc in Psychology from the University of Sheffield in 2005.
