Jodie Davies-Thompson

Postdoctoral Fellow.
University of Nottingham.
April 2016 - present.

Projects: Using fMRI and structural MRI to investigate neural plasticity in D/deaf individuals.
Supervisor:
Prof. Douglas Hartley

Postdoctoral Fellow.
University of Trento.
June 2014 - March 2016.

Projects: Using fMRI and structural MRI to investigate neural plasticity in the blind and deaf.

Supervisor:
Dr. Olivier Collignon


Postdoctoral Fellow.
University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
November 2010 - May 2014.

Projects: I am using behavioural techniques to investigate ways in which training can facilitate face recognition in prosopagnosic individuals.
I am also using functional Magentic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), among other techniques, to examine the neural effects of training. Ultimately, my goal is to develop rehabilitation techniques to improve face recognition skills.
Supervisor: Prof. Jason Barton


PhD. Cognitive Neuroscience.
University of York.
October 2007 - October 2010.

Projects: Using fMRI to investigate the neural mechanisms involved in face perception and
to what extent images of familiar faces can vary before they are processed independently of one another. Specifically, I looked at face-selective regions in the brain, and how these regions code aspects of familiar and unfamiliar faces.
Supervisor: Prof. Tim Andrews
