Project summary

Peter is a cognitive neuroscientist with a background in computational modelling and neuroimaging analysis. His research goal is to understand the contribution of the rich spontaneous patterns activity of the brain to cognition. During his Fellowship, Peter will use a combination of computational modelling and multi-modal neuroimaging (EEG, MEG and fMRI) to explore feedback mechanisms which allow the brain to maintain rich spontaneous dynamics despite a constantly evolving environment. This work will be conducted in collaboration with Professor Federico Turkheimer at King’s College London and Dr Claudia Clopath at Imperial College London.
