Liam Doherty

Biography:

I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Glasgow. During this time I completed an ERASMUS research internship at Friedrich-Schiller University Jena (Germany), where I investigated gaze and pupillometry responses in face perception. My honours thesis investigated how to experimentally manipulate visual aesthetic judgements of a stimulus as a function of its learned affective and conceptual associations. After graduating, I returned to the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow as a research assistant. Here I investigated learning transfer between implicit and explicit memory circuits. I joined the Adaptive Brain Lab in 2017 as an MPhil student, where I currently investigate neural oscillations and perceptual learning.

Away from the lab I enjoy cinema, playing chess, and cycling.

Liam is a member of Girton College.

Research Interests

I am interested in perceptual learning, and how such learning can produce stable categorical representations. My current project investigates the role of the alpha rhythm in occipital and parietal cortex in visual category learning by employing EEG, TMS, and behavioural methods.
