Nuno Reis Goncalves


After completing my undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering (IPP, Portugal), I specialised in neural engineering through a double M.Sc. at RWTH Aachen University (Germany) and Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). In Dublin, I worked with Ed Lalor on isolating non-invasive neurophysiological responses to the modulation of specific visual features (Goncalves et al., 2014). I Joined the Adaptive Brain Lab in 2012 as a PhD student. My work uses high-field (7T) imaging to understand the fine cortical organisation the supports depth perception in the human brain.

Outside the lab I enjoy sports and everything else Cambridge has to offer.



Research Interests

My current research focuses on the application of high-field fMRI for unveiling functional properties of cortical layers in human visual cortex. We aim to assess, using multimodal imaging techniques, how learning shapes these properties.
