Christine Gaffney - MSc TCD NeuroscienceBiographical information:

I received a BA Psychology degree from University College Dublin and an MSc Neuroscience degree from Trinity College Dublin. For my MSc thesis, under the supervision of Dr Redmond O’Connell, I examined the neural mechanisms of perceptual learning using a perceptual decision making model.

I am now assisting with research in the O’Connell lab and I am involved in helping out with a number of projects relating to the neural correlates of perceptual decision making.

Research interests:

  • Perceptual learning
  • Perceptual decision making
  • Attention
