Dr Paul Hoffman

My research is concerned with the processes of semantic cognition – i.e., the ways in which we (a) maintain a store of conceptual knowledge about objects, words and people and (b) use executive control processes to access this information in a flexible, task-appropriate manner. I explore this using a variety of techniques, including:

  • Case-series neuropsychological investigations, primarily of patients with semantic dementia and semantic deficits following stroke
  • Computational linguistic analyses (e.g., latent semantic analysis)
  • Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in healthy subjects
  • Functional neuroimaging studies
  • Connectionist computational models

Dr Anne Keitel

I am interested in intrinsic rhythmic activity in the human brain and how this might help us to understand natural spoken language. We have recently shown that each brain area has its own characteristic mix of intrinsic rhythms. On the other hand, speech is also nearly-rhythmic on several different timescales (words, syllables, etc). How our intrinsic brain rhythms can capitalise on speech rhythms to support speech comprehension is therefore a highly interesting question that can teach us more about functional brain mechanisms. I use magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG), and metrics such as mutual information and phase coherence.

Dr Cyril Pernet

Dr Pernet is a senior academic fellow, teaching MRI/fMRI/EEG and researching on methods (statistics) for clinical applications (brain tumours, stroke). He is also the Edinburgh Imaging scientific contact for functional MRI studies, and support data management and open science activities.

 

Dr Pernet, obtained a PhD in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the University of Toulouse III in France in 2004. He was then working with Prof. JF Demonet and Dr P Celsis on neurodevelopmental disorders using MRI, functional MRI and EEG. He next obtained a post-doc fellowship from the Fyssen Foundation to work in Finland with Prof. R. Salmelin on reading using MEG. He moved to UK in 2006, working in Glasgow with Prof. B. Belin as post-doc research assistant, working on auditory (voice) processing using fMRI and EEG. He joined the Brain Research Imaging Center, Edinburgh in 2007, as fMRI lead for SINAPSE (Scottish Imaging Network A Platform for Scientific Excellence).
