Sarah Armstrong

MSci, MSc

DPhil Neuroscience Candidate (Saxe Lab)

I’m a student on the 1+3 doctoral programme in neuroscience, co-supervised by Andrew Saxe and Adam Packer. My interests are computation and learning in sensory systems. My project involves devising and testing experimental predictions about network dynamics across the visual cortical hierarchy under different theories, in response to activity perturbations, during sensory experience and throughout the course of perceptual learning.

Previously, I studied neuroscience at Bristol University and spent time in industry as an electrophysiologist in the Synapses and Circuits research group at Roche, where I studied the development of excitatory-inhibitory balance in human patient stem cell derived neurons.
