Vice Chancellor's Research Fellow in Cognitive Neuroscience
Dr Tijl Grootswagers is a computational cognitive neuroscientist who combines cutting-edge machine learning techniques, neuroimaging, and behavioural data to understand how the brain represents and processes information. More specifically, He investigates how the brain perceives and represents visual objects, and how it uses these representations for decision making. He flexibly uses various neuroimaging techniques, such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to examine representations in different brain areas, or magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG) to study the temporal dynamics of information processing.
Tijl uses state-of-the-art multivariate pattern analysis (MVPA) or “brain decoding” methods to analyse neuroimaging data. In addition, he develops novel approaches for relating brain activity patterns to human behaviour and artificial models of human cognition.
