Amir Homayoun Javadi


I am mostly interested in memory, e.g. spatial, declarative and procedural memories, learning, e.g. probabilistic and reversal learning and decision-making. I use different methods of brain stimulation, e.g. transcranial electrical (tDCS) and magnetic (TMS) stimulation, different methods of brain imaging, e.g. EEG and fMRI, as well as computational methods in order to investigate different aspects of memory modulation, learning and decision making in both adults and adolescents. I am also interested in perception of magnitudes (especially time) and modulatory effects of sleep on different aspects of cognition.

Currently I am a Wellcome Trust post-doctoral fellow investigating the role of theta oscillations in planning and decision-making during navigation. We use virtual reality (VR) to generate the virtual world and MEG to record brain signals while participants perform certain tasks of exploration and path planning.
