DPhil Success: Adam Steel
DPhil Student Adam passes his DPhil Viva
We would like to congratulate Adam Steel on his recent successful DPhil viva!
Adam's thesis investigated functional plasticity in the human brain, with work on the impact of reward and punishment on motor task performance and functional connectivity. He has also helped pioneer the use of magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging here in Oxford.
Links to some of Adam's work are below:
- "Metabolite-cycled density-weighted concentric rings k-space trajectory (DW-CRT) enables high-resolution 1 H magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging at 3-Tesla" - Steel et al. 2018
- "Reward and punishment differentially recruit cerebellum and medial temporal lobe to facilitate skill memory retention" - Steel et al. 2018
- "The impact of reward and punishment on skill learning depends on task demands" - Steel et al. 2016
Adam Steel wins NIH/OxCam Innovation Award for his work developing Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging (MRSI) with Charlie Stagg and Uzay Emir
