SINAPSE experts from around Scotland have developed ten online modules designed to explain medical imaging. They are freely available and are intended for non-specialists.

Edinburgh Imaging Academy at the University of Edinburgh offers the following online programmes through a virtual learning environment:

Neuroimaging for Research MSc/Dip/Cert

Imaging MSc/Dip/Cert

PET-MR Principles & Applications Cert

Applied Medical Image Analysis Cert

Online Short Courses

Position: Lecturer in Psychology



I keep an unwavering interested in how our visual system deals with ongoing dynamic stimulation as we experience it in our everyday lives.

I also undertake frequent excursions into the areas of multi-sensory processing, intrinsic brain rhythms and, most recently, relationships between rhythmic brain activity and other physiological signals (pupil diameter, for example).

My methods of choice are the "fast" neuroimaging techniques EEG & MEG and eye tracking.

Stirling's Mobile Cognition focus allows me to take my neuroimaging research out of the lab and into the "real world".


Institute: University of Stirling

Department: Psychology

Research Themes


Visual perception and processing of dynamic stimulation

Human sustained performance and lapses of attention

Stimulus-driven vs ongoing brain oscillations and their interaction
