My connections

Samuel Picard

Postgraduate Student

Short Description

I am a Wellcome Trust doctoral student working in the Auditory Neuroscience Group under the joint supervision of Prof Andy King, Dr Johannes Dahmen and Dr Nicol Harper. I am interested in how the brain integrates perceptual and motor information to create a flexible internal model of the world. In my research, I am combining in vivo laser scanning microscopy with innovative behavioural paradigms and modelling work to shed light on what sorts of sensorimotor interactions may give rise to adaptive behaviour in dynamic acoustic environments.



Having received a BSc in Liberal Arts & Sciences from University College Utrecht, I have a multidisciplinary background in Neuroscience, Mathematics, Philosophy and Linguistics. Before starting my current programme in Oxford, I worked with Prof Chris De Zeeuw at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, studying the effects of selective cerebellar degeneration on spatio-temporal prediction. I subsequently did an internship at the Ear Institute, UCL, investigating the neural basis of auditory scene analysis using MEG, and I studied visual perception at the École Normale Supérieure, Paris - obtaining a Dual MSc in Brain & Mind Sciences.
