|PREDICTIVE SENSORY MOTOR LABORATORY|
Lee (2003-2005) Ji-Hang
joined Chris Miall's
research group in 2003 as a Research Fellow, in
James Stanley (2004-2006) James arrived almost the same day we moved to Birmingham, having just completed his PhD on emotional photographic stimuli and the startle reflex, in the Department of Psychology, University of Otago, New Zealand, under the supervision of Prof Bob Knight. He also worked as a research assistant for Prof Jeff Miller at Otago, recording EEG signals for studies in cognitive psychophysiology. He has worked on how observing another individual performing a movement interacts with our own performance of a similar movement, and the processes by which such observation causes interference in performed movements; on how forward modelling of actions leads to improved visual discrimination, and on top-down modulation of the perception of biological motion. In Dec 2006 he left to return to New Zealand.
Stephen Caulder (Computer Officer, 2005-2007) Now lecturer at North East Wales Institute of Higher Education (NEWI).
(2004-2008) Joe joined us as a PhD student after
completing his degree in Sport & Exercise
Sciences. He worked on issues of motor learning and
bimanual adaptation to visual and dynamic
perturbations. He moved on to a post-doctorial fellow
at Johns Hopkins University.
(2005-2006) Tom was a graduate research student
Gay Swait (2005
-2014) Gay completed a PhD part-time, co-supervised
with Dr Alison Rushton, Health Sciences, on the
relationship between neck pain and oculomotor control.
She was part funded by a McTimoney College of
Chiropracty Scholarship. She is a self-employed
Neil Albert (2006-2008) Neil came from a PhD with Richard Ivry, and spent two years with us (or rather 2 years travelling on the trains to and from Chester). He worked on bimanual skill learning, on inhibition of voluntary actions and on the influence of learning on resting state networks. In addition, he collaborated on a wide number of ongoing projects. He moved on to his second post-doctoral position in Chicago in Dec 08.
Carl Jackson (2006-2009) Carl joined the lab as a postdoc fresh from his PhD in Nottingham. He worked on unimanual and bimanual behavioural studies, including the identification of a novel somatosensory illusion and an investigation into the effect of proprioception on visual attention. He then resided in Kingston, Ontario, Canada for his second postdoc at Queen's University.
Gillett, (2007-2011). PhD Co-supervised with Dr
Kim Quinn, funded by an ESRC-MRC Social Neuroscience
studentship. Since 2013 - University Public engagement
Kianoush Nazarpour (2007-2009) Kia
joined the lab while he was a PhD student at Cardiff
University, and spent two years with us. He worked on
brain computer interfacing. He moved on to his second
post-doctoral position in Newcastle in October 09.
Stregapede (2008-2011). Co-supervised as a
graduate student with Prof Antje Meyer; MPI Groningen,
Fran was supported by a School Scholarship & MPI
Hardwick (2009-2012) Rob joins us after a PhD in
Sport and Exercise Sciences and was heavily involved
in pursuing the use of TMS to manipulate motor
learning. He has use meta-analysis to establish PMd as
a core area activated during motor learning imaging
experiments, and has been using rTMS over cerebellum
and motor cortex to manipulate slow and fast motor
learning processes. He left in late 2012 to join Pablo
Celnik's laboratory in Johns Hopkins, Baltimore.
Kennedy (2009-2012) was a post-doc in the lab
for three years, after completion of his PhD at
Cardiff. He was modelling the multiple rates of motor
learning, using extensions and modifications to the
dual-state model proposed by Maurice Smith and
colleagues. He left in 2012 and returned to his early
area of mental health nursing.
Christian Rawle. (2009-2013). Christian was a graduate student co-supervised with Dr Peter Praamstra, supported by a School Scholarship.
Lesage (2010-2013) A PhD student funded by EU
ITN C7, working on cerebellar involvement in language.
Since 2013 she has been in a post-doctoral position,
NIH, Baltimore, USA
Dagioglou (2010-2014) A PhD student funded by EU
ITN C7, Maria worked on motor learning, TDCS, and on
exploration/exploitation issues.She is now a
post-doctoral fellow, in a robotics institute, Athens,
Se-Ho Nam (2011-2014) was a post-doc in the lab for three years, working on a collaborative project with John Tchalenko, to explore eye-hand control in drawing. He also worked on sensory thresholds in deafferentation. He left the lab in 2014.
