We use MEG to resolve the time course of cognitive operations and their representation in the brain. 

MEG measures small magnetic fields outside the head that are generated by electrical activity in the brain. Measurements are performed with extremely sensitive sensors called Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) in the helmet of the scanner.

Using our 248-channel, whole-head MEG system, we have gained important insights into the relationship between human brain function and behaviour.

Our projects

Neural signal combination

Combining M/EEG recordings with psychophysical measures, MRI activity, and computational modelling to better understand the neural algorithms underpinning sensory experiences.

Efficient vision in a structured world

Characterising neural responses to naturalistic visual inputs using functional MRI, MEG/EEG, and multivariate classification analyses.

Colour perception in the visual pathway

Undertaking MEG experiments to investigate how, when, and where, colour signals are combined in the visual pathway.
