Dr. Stephanie Rossit (Lab PI)

I joined the University of East Anglia (UEA) as a Lecturer in the School of Psychology in 2013. I grew up in Portugal and graduated in Psychology from the University of the Algarve (Portugal). I did my Ph.D. at the University of Glasgow investigating stroke patients who suffered from visual neglect. After my Ph.D. I undertook a post-doctoral research position at the Brain and Mind Institute at the Western University (London, Ontario, Canada) using functional magnetic resonance imaging to study perception and action. My research is focused in studying the role of sensory information for perception and motor control and how these two processes interact. I use a variety of methods: psychophysics, motion-tracking to measure eye and hand movements, lesion-symptom mapping and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). At UEA I supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate students. If you are interested in research opportunities in my lab, please get in touch!

Ethan Knights (PhD student)

My Ph.D. investigates the neural representations of human tool use. Using neuroimaging techniques (fMRI) I am exploring where the neural information is processed that supports humans’ unique ability to perform advanced actions with tools. This research fits well with my interests in perception & action that I have developed in the Vision & Action lab at the UEA with Dr. Stephanie Rossit. Here I have undertaken research investigating the human visuomotor system from various angles including sensorimotor adaptation (undergraduate summer project), action training (BSc.) and a neuropsychological case study of a patient with visual neglect & extinction (MSc.). I have submitted my PhD thesis (waiting for Viva) and am currently a researcher at the MRC-CBU.

Helen Morse (Stroke Association Postgraduate Fellow)

I graduated with a degree in Psychology in 2016 from Plymouth University. During my undergraduate course I investigated neural processes underlying visual mental imagery using ERPs and during my MSc Cognitive Neuroscience I studied how visuomotor feedback training affects perception, attentional processing and mental imagery in healthy individuals. I have been awarded a Stroke Association PhD fellowship to continue this work with Stephanie, Prof. Pomeroy and Dr. Allan Clark.

Amy Jolly (MSc.student)

I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at UEA in 2018. I then began my masters in Cognitive Neuroscience the following September. I am currently working on a NIHR funded project on home-based rehabilitation of spatial neglect with Evolv Rehabilitation  Technologies and Professor Val Pomeroy. I am extremely interested in the rehabilitation of stroke and hope to continue research in this field following my masters. I have submitted my thesis and am now a researcher at the University of Cambridge with Prof. Hugh Markus.

Annie Warman (MSc student)

I graduated with a degree in Psychology from the University of Hull in July 2018. During my undergraduate degree, I investigated individual differences in the integration of speech and gesture and developed a strong interest in neuropsychology and research. I am now studying for a Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience at UEA and am working with the Neurolab team investigating parietal lobe functioning in Alzheimer's and Mild Cognitive Impairment. In my spare time, I enjoy running and am working towards my second half-marathon. I am also a lover of live music, and play piano and clarinet.

Elise Kenning (MSc student)

I graduated with a BSc in Psychology (1st class) from the University of East Anglia in 2019. During my undergraduate course I investigated language processing-speed deficits in individuals with Dyslexia. I am now currently studying MSc Cognitive Neuroscience at UEA. With the NeuroLab, I am investigating peripheral visual-space reaching deficits in individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease, using motion tracking technology and portable tablet tasks. I aim to continue to work in Dementia research, with the hope of completing a PhD within this area.
