We are delighted to welcome three new members to the lab.
Pushpita Bhattacharyya is a new PhD student who received her undergraduate degree from the University of California – San Diego. While working with Dr. V.S. Ramachandran, she examined grapheme-color synesthesia in Bengali. She plans to continue this research and expand to studying mirror-touch synesthesia.
Luisa Raigosa Posada is a new 4+1 student. She comes with a Master of Music degree in clarinet performance and a BS in Neuroscience from the University of Delaware. She will be working on neuroimaging projects – specifically using multi-voxel pattern analysis (MVPA) and representational similarity analysis (RSA) to examine multisensory integration and representations of tactile space.
Riwa Safa is a new PhD student who received her undergraduate degree from the American University of Beirut. Her previous research examined the relationship between reading direction and face perception. She is working on visuoproprioceptive integration, with a focus on evidence from individuals with stroke.
