Dr Jacinta O’Shea

Jacinta O'Shea

Dr Jacinta O’Shea is a cognitive neuroscientist interested in the sensorimotor bases of higher cognition (attention, memory, learning). Dr O’Shea uses neural interference methods, combined with neuroimaging and behavioural probes to make reverse inference about how information processing is organised in the healthy brain. Together with the team at the University of Oxford, she aims to leverage these insights within an experimental medicine framework to develop novel therapeutic interventions to aid individuals affected by psychiatric or neurological conditions.

Dr Jacinta O’Shea chaired the Brainbox Initiative Conference 2019, and is acting as TMS session chair for the Brainbox Initiative Conference 2020.
