Previous DPhil Students
Magda completed her DPhil in the Physiological Neuroimaging Group, supervised by Charlie Stagg and Professor Peter Brown. Her thesis focussed on transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), investigating the mechanisms of beta and gamma frequency tACS using multi-modal brain imaging (MEG, TMS, MRS). My secondary interests revolve around the physiological oscillatory activity underlying motor learning.
James completed his DPhil in the Plasticity Group, supervised by Charlie Stagg and Heidi Johnansen-Berg. His thesis was "Assessing sensorimotor plasticity with multimodal magnetic resonance imaging". During her DPhil, James investigated the ability of sensorimotor cortex to adapt and change both in the short-term, and over longer periods of time.
James stayed in Oxford as a Stevenson Junior Research Fellow in Medical Sciences, affiliated with University College before moving to CUBRIC in Cardiff on a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship. He is continuing his work on the somatosensory and motor regions of the brain, specifically in understanding how these regions support dexterous function of the hand.
James continues to collaborate with the work of the Physiological Neuroimaging Group.
