Sensing versus seeing: insights from simultaneous EEG-fMRI

Dr. Catriona Scrivener is a postdoctoral researcher at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge. Her research focuses on the neural mechanisms that determine what stimuli from our environment reach our awareness, and the role of feedforward/feedback communication between the early visual cortex and higher visual areas in supporting this process. During her PhD with Dr. Etienne Roesch at the University of Reading, she investigated full and partial awareness of changes to visual stimuli using a combination of EEG and simultaneous EEG-fMRI measures. She is also developing methods for multivariate pattern analysis of fMRI and EEG data, with the aim of improving our ability to track information content throughout the brain at varying temporal and spatial scales.
