Hello, I'm Peter and I research the neuroscience of memory and imagination. I'm also into artificial intelligence, computing, and science communication. Here are links to a few projects, past and present:

Academic Work

  • Memory and the brain - My PhD examined how the human brain supports memory and imagination.
  • Language in the brain - My MSc thesis on the neuroscience of language. I looked into how language information flows through the brain, in healthy people and stroke victims.
  • Modelling Head Direction Cells - An MSc project exploring how our brains keep track of which way we're facing at any given time  http://www.worldscibooks.com/lifesci/6791.html
  • PopRacer - A genetic algorithm / neural network simulation where agents learn to drive round a track - a nice article by my collaborator Mark Rowan - http://www.tamias.co.uk/research/popracer
