Nick is a postdoc in the Brain & Cognition Lab, supervised by Kia Nobre.
Nick is interested in the control of working memory, and how brain oscillations may act to organize such control. He uses modelling, EEG, MEG, and fMRI to look at these questions.
After a degree in neuroscience from Columbia University in New York, Nick studied psychology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, where he worked on visual attention in healthy adults and in patients with early Alzheimer’s Disease. He came to Oxford for his DPhil on the Wellcome Trust Neuroscience program, where he worked on the neural correlates of attention in short-term memory (with Kia Nobre and Mark Stokes).
