Kristine Krug's research group Public Engagement
SommerAKAdEMIE DER STUDIENSTIFTUNG IN ROT 2017
Together with 17 students and three professors, we spent two weeks investigating the possibilities, limitations and ethics of different neural intervention methods.
Seminars, discussions and experiments ranged from stimulating neurons in the cockroach, through cochlear implants and visual neuroprosthetics to non-invasive tDCS and TMS in humans.

Beat the Vision Expert
Live crowd experiment on making decision-making about what we see at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhbition 2015. Can the crowd be as good or even better than a trained vision expert at making perceptual decisions? This was part of our Neuron to Nerf guns exhibit (see London Science Museum Late event below).
Your changing brain: from neurons to Nerf guns
With many other Royal Society Research Fellows and scientists, we contributed to the London Science Museum Lates in 2015: The next big thing. Together, Oxford colleagues Holly Bridge, Sarah Newey and Kristine Krug developed an exhibit about the Changing Brain:
- Demonstrating adaptation when your gaze gets bend while shooting Nerf guns
- Comparing expert and crowd judgments on a 3D object
- Looking at brains and cells at different ages.
Interactive Talk: Close encounter with the 3D mind
Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014: Kristine Krug gave an interactive talk about 3D vision that involved red-green glasses, mobile phones to make visual judgements and looking at brain function supporting perception.
