Lead, Cognition and Consciousness Imaging Group, Division of Anaesthesia, University of Cambridge


My research seeks to determine how cognitive function arises from the topographical organization and complex dynamics in the brain. My integrative, interdisciplinary approach combines behavioural paradigms with state-of-the-art multimodal brain imaging (structural/functional MRI, PET and EEG) and computational neuroimaging approaches using mathematical models, network science and information theory to investigate functional organisation in the human brain. More recent research directions include: attempting to bridge micro- and macroscopic levels in neuroscience by investigating associations between brain network connectivity and gene expression; studying the influence of brainstem neurotransmitter/neuromodulator systems on cortical/subcortical networks and the use of deep graph convolutional neural networks to identify patients with disorders of consciousness with covert cognitive capacity.

What Is It About the Human Brain That Makes Us Smarter Than Other Animals? New Research

Humans are unrivaled in the area of cognition. After all, no other species has sent probes to other planets, produced lifesaving vaccines, or created poetry. How information is processed in the human brain to...
