Nichola Rice - Post doctoral fellow
I recently arrived at the Grafton lab after completing my PhD at the
My research interests involve addressing the way in which the brain processes visual information to guide actions, such as reaching, grasping, catching and obstacle avoidance. I use a range of techniques in my experiments, including behavioural testing of patients, transcranial magnetic stimulation and functional magnetic resonance imaging.
I am currently carrying out a study with healthy participants using transcranial magnetic stimulation to investigate the way in which the brain processes the planning, execution and online updating of grasping movements.
