Research summary

I am the Wellcome trust strategic award fellow for brain stimulation research at Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre. I use a verity of techniques to look at the relationship between the mind and the brain. These include Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Magnetoencephalography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Recently my work has focused on the control of actions and the coupling between experience and how it is embodied in physiology.
