Paul Taylor is Professor of Cognition and Higher Vestibular Disorders at the Klinikum Grosshadern, the university hospital of LMU, Munich, Germany.
The group’s research extends cognitive neuroscience into clinically relevant domains, in particular investigating how visual cognition is compromised in various populations of neurological patients — such as those with vestibular disorders and the elderly. This research has three stages: firstly, the development of cutting-edge methods, including combining human non-invasive brain stimulation (TMS and tCS) online with EEG, eye tracking and others, on both “normal” and patient populations; secondly, basic research into how attention relates to multi-sensory integration, action, intention, and awareness; and, thirdly, translational research enabled by working with our colleagues in the Neurology Department and at the German Center for Vertigo and Balance Disorders.
Professor Paul Taylor will be speaking on ‘Understanding natural perception with artificial methods? Combining brain interference with EEG and visual-vestibular cognition.’ at the BrainBox Initiative Conference on the 27-28 September at the Wellcome Collection, London.
