Irene Echeverria-Altuna

DPhil Candidate

I am a DPhil in Neuroscience funded by the Wellcome Trust. My doctoral research is supervised by Prof. Kia Nobre, with Prof. Kate Watkins and Dr. Kerry Walker (DPAG) as co-supervisors.

The environment is continuously changing. Our nervous system is capable of integrating these changes over time, facilitating an adaptive interaction with the world. At any moment, our brains are retaining past experiences and estimating future events. 

During my doctoral research, I will try to answer the question of whether retention of immediately past events and anticipation of future ones influences present perception both in the visual and in the auditory domains. By manipulating task demands, I also hope to explore whether such effects are flexible and context dependent.
