My name is Tom Marshall. I’m a computational cognitive neuroscientist interested in how the brain learns to pay attention to the right parts of space.
The world is an overwhelming place, and figuring out what to pay attention to right now is a tricky problem for a brain. I use a combination of computational modelling, neuroimaging (mainly MEG), and non-invasive brain stimulation (TMS and tDCS), to investigate how human brains solve this tricky problem.
Currently I’m a post-doc in the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford.
