copy3Thomas Hein

PhD Student (ESRC funding)
Thomas investigates the impact of everyday experiences such as motivation, and prior expectations upon learning. By combining computational modelling with brain imaging methods, he aims to achieve a mechanistic understanding of the neural computations subserving how we interact with the world.

NayaP_photoPanagiota Polychrony

PhD Student (second supervisor)
Naya is researching the neurophysiological bases of meta-awareness during mind wandering with Devin Terhune and Maria Herrojo Ruiz. Aside from her interests in consciousness and metacognition, she is also interested in time perception and the sense of agency.

JustynaJustyna Gula
