Dr Benedikt Zoefel is a post-doctoral researcher and Marie-Curie Fellow at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge, UK.
Benedikt is interested in how our brain can cope with the vast amount of information it continuously receives: and, more specifically, how neural oscillations are used to prioritise, filter and structure stimulus input. He uses brain stimulation techniques (e.g. tACS) that can be used to selectively alter neural oscillations, and measures consequences for neural activity with methods of high temporal (e.g. EEG/MEG) and spatial (e.g. MRI) resolution.
We interviewed Benedikt in advance of the BrainBox Initiative Conference 2017 at which he also spoke. You can read that interview here.
Dr Benedikt Zoefel will be speaking at the upcoming BrainBox Initiative Conference at the Wellcome Collection on the 27-28 September 2018.
