Joshua J Chauvin
BA (Hons) MSc
Brain & Cognition Lab (Nobre Lab) & Oxford Cognitive Neuropsychology Centre
I am a graduate student at the Brain & Cognition Lab and the Oxford Cognitive Neuropsychology Centre (CNC) and am currently supervised by Kia Nobre and Glyn Humphreys. I am funded by the Rhodes Trust and am based at New College, Oxford.
I am interested in understanding the contributions different brain regions, such as the basal ganglia, make to temporal expectations. I will be studying this by testing patients with Parkinson’s disease and patients with other focal lesions.
I grew up in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I completed my Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Philosophy and Psychology with Thesis at the University of Windsor. I graduated with Distinction and received the Board of Governor’s Medal in Philosophy for obtaining the highest cumulative average. While at the University of Windsor, I was supervised by Marcello Guarini and Christopher Abeare. After being awarded a highly competitive Rhodes Scholarship in 2011, I completed my Master’s of Science in Psychological Research at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Glyn Humphreys and Kia Nobre.
