Based at the Behavioural Neuroscience Laboratory, School of Psychology

Research interests

My research combines investigations of the theoretical mechanisms involved in different forms of learning in both human and nonhuman animals with analyses of the neural systems that underlie these forms of learning. Within this interdisciplinary context, I am currently investigating associative learning, attentional modulation, configural learning, imitative learning and perceptual learning.


The Behavioural Neuroscience Laboratory is equipped with extensive behavioural testing suites and state-of-the art neuroscientific facilities.

Available PhD projects

  1. Configural learning and episodic memory: An integrative analysis
  2. Investigation of the neural mechanisms underlying perceptual learning
  3. Development of a connectionist analysis of acquired distinctiveness effects
