Research in the O’Connell lab is seeking to understand the neural mechanisms underpinning high-level cognition. This work comprises both basic and translational research, employing pscyhophysics and computational modelling in combination with a range of psychophysiological techniques including EEG, fMRI, autonomic system measurement and transcranial stimulation. Our primary research interests include perceptual decision making, performance monitoring, and attention. To dive into the specifics of our research, visit our Research page.
