Pat Mc Keown Research AssistantBiographical Information:

I received a BSc Hons in Neuroscience from University College Dublin in 2016, and an MSc in Psychology from Dublin City University in 2020. I began working in the O’Connell Lab in the summer of 2021 as a Research Assistant. My role focuses on supporting the team with their various research projects as well as communicating the O’Connell labs’ findings to a wide audience.  

My research interests lie in perceptual decision making, EEG, and wellbeing.
