Dr Amir-Homayoun Javadi | group leader – firstname.lastname@example.org
Amir-Homayoun is a lecturer at the School of Psychology, University of Kent since December 2015. Prior to taking up his position at University of Kent he was a postdoctoral researcher at University College London (UK), Dresden University of Technology (Germany) and Humboldt University in Berlin (Germany).
With a background in electrical engineering he finished his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London. Combining his engineering and scientific training, he aims at using different tools and methods to understand brain mechanisms underneath memory, learning and decision making. His ultimate goal is to develop innovative intervention methods to help healthy ageing and faster rehabilitation and recovery of individuals suffering from a form of brain injury, such as stroke.
Fadi Ifram | PhD student – email@example.com
Fadi started his PhD in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Kent in September 2016. Before commencing his PhD, he obtained an MSc and MRes in Molecular Neuroscience and Brain Sciences at the University of Bristol (UK) and University College London (UK), respectively.
His research focuses on the enhancement of long-term memory and its associated neural oscillatory activity using methods such as physical exercise, electrical- and magnetic brain stimulation, as well as neuroimaging techniques such as EEG.
Charlotte and Anna’s focus is on studying oscillatory activity in the brain and how this impacts memory. They use transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and electroencephalography (EEG) in their research.
Fern and Yashoda’s interest is rehabilitation in stroke patients, in particular those individuals with language difficulties (aphasia). Their intervention includes a combination of a language training task and electrical brain stimulation.
Amelia Turrell | MSc student – firstname.lastname@example.org
Amelia is investigating the emotional effects of music. In particular she is investigating the neural correlate of brain response to drops in music. For sample stimuli listen to this piece for weaker and this piece for stronger drops. The drops happen around second 14 in these samples. She uses electroencephalography (EEG) in her research.
Isabella Sewell | BSc student – email@example.com
Isabella’s interests are dance and motor performance. Her project investigates the effects of electrical brain stimulation on learning of new dance moves.
