Alexander Luettich


DPhil Student

Alexander is a graduate student at the Brain & Cognition Lab supervised by Kia Nobre. He is funded by a EU Marie Curie Early Stage Research Fellowship and based at Wolfson College, Oxford.

Alexander’s research is aimed at investigating and differentiating different aspects of attention using cognitive and psychophysical tasks combined with fMRI and EEG. Specifically, he is interested in brain systems and mechanisms supporting temporal and spatial orienting of attention and how these two types of attention guide adaptive perceptions.

By applying his research to clinical populations, he wants to develop biomarkers for attentional change after brain lesion and neurodegenerative conditions. His work is embedded in the Individualised Diagnostics and Rehabilitation of Attention Disorders (INDIREA) network.

Brief Bio

After completing his undergraduate training in Biology at the University of Regensburg (Germany), Alexander took a Master’s programme in Experimental and Clinical Neurosciences there.

Other Interests

Apart from neuroscience, Alexander enjoys jam sessions, hiking and judo. He is also interested in international cooperation, where he had been working at the Health Section of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
