I received a BSc in Psychology from the University of Stirling and I am now part of the Cognitive Neuroscience MSc course at UCL. My undergraduate project focused on the cognitive mechanisms underlying rapid and accurate visual enumeration and their potential relationship to shape perception. I am currently involved in two projects which employ EEG or computational based modelling approaches. These projects seek to examine the potential biases which prioritize the integration of favorable over unfavorable information into an individual’s beliefs. This will be done in order to understand how these factors affect learning and rational decision-making processes.
