Danielle Hewitt


Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging in the Pain and Aversive Learning group, supervised by Prof Ben Seymour.

My research interests are in the application of EEG and fMRI to investigate the processing and modulation of pain, tactile processing, and sensorimotor interactions in both healthy volunteers and clinical populations. My current work focuses on changes in pain learning and threat detection after injury.

Before joining the team at Oxford, I completed a PhD at the University of Liverpool supervised by Dr Andrej Stancak, Dr Nick Fallon and Dr Christopher Brown. During my PhD, I investigated the neural changes associated with spinal cord stimulation and external peripheral nerve stimulation for neuropathic pain.

I am also involved in organizing social and academic events within the department. As the co-chair of the Clinical Neurosciences Society, I am responsible for promoting and overseeing educational, developmental, and social events that aim to bring people in the department together and build a sense of community at NDCN.

Additionally, together with Julien Fars, I am also part of the Social Club at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging. Our role is to facilitate the organisation and advertisement of community events within the centre.
