Lukas Schaeffner


During a summer internship in 2012 I conducted my first psychophysics experiment in the Adaptive Brain Lab on object gloss perception driven by binocular disparity under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Welchman.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2014 from the University of Salzburg (Austria). For my undergraduate thesis I conducted an EEG sleep research project to investigate the role of different sleep stages in motor memory consolidation during sleep.

In late 2014 I joined the Adaptive Brain Lab as a PhD student of Dr. Andrew Welchman. In my work I investigate the efficacy of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) in the visual cortex by combining this potent neuro-modulatory technique with functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

In my free time I play Volleyball for the University of Cambridge.

Research Interests

My work focuses on brain stimulation and where TMS can help us to make causal inferences about local signal processing in underlying neural populations in the visual cortex.
