Jackson Smith

PhD

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Biography

Dr. Jackson Smith is a post-doctoral research assistant working in the laboratory of Dr. Kristine Krug. He apprenticed with Dr. Erik Cook at McGill University (Montréal, Canada) during his doctoral training, and with Dr. Martin Paré during his undergraduate training at Queen's University (Kingston, Canada).

His general research interest is the relationship between brain activity and the sense of perception. Previously, he has used electrophysiological techniques to investigate the way that the activity of individual neurones is correlated with behaviour during visually guided tasks. Currently, he is using magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the anatomy of cortical networks that are involved in guiding visual behaviour – giving context to his previous work.
