Sophie Payne

Sophie PayneHaving recently graduated from the University of Roehampton with a BSc in Psychology, I am excited to continue perusing my research interests and education at Royal Holloway. I look forward to expanding my research expertise while working with the other members of the Lab of Action and Body, and under the supervision of Manos Tsakiris.

Research Interests: I have a general interest in cognitive neuroscience research methods, and have experience using a number of techniques including fMRI, TMS, EEG and tDCS. I hope to continue employing a variety of research methods during the course of my PhD to investigate my more specific interest in cortical plasticity.  My current research will focus on the plasticity of mental self-representations, and the mechanisms in the brain by which these representations are acquired and updated.
