Applications are invited for PhD scholarship/stipends for projects with the Language, Cognition and Brain Sciences Laboratory (http://www.langcogbrain.net) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia.
Research in the lab makes use of a range of methodologies, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electrophysiology (intracranial and scalp-recorded EEG), transcranial magnetic and direct current stimulation (TMS & tDCS), and behavioural paradigms, in both healthy and neurologically disordered populations. Current projects involve research into the cognitive and neural mechanisms of healthy language production and comprehension, intracranial EEG in candidates for epilepsy surgery, and aphasia following stroke and surgery for brain tumours in children and adults.
