    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Daniel has research experience in brain plasticity, judgement and decision-making, memory, executive functions (e.g., inhibition, updating), individual differences (e.g., healthy ageing), visual cognition, neuropsychology and applied psychology.

    There are two key areas to Daniel's research: (i) neuromodulation and (ii) judgement and decision-making (with other higher order functions). In his neuromodulation work Daniel has examined and continues to examine the neural substrates of high order functioning in the human brain through the use of tDCS, tRNS, TACS, and TMS. He also has an interest in the application of behavioural economics, judgement and decision-making (e.g., heuristics and biases), and nudging to aid and improve real-world decision-making (e.g., in finance and politics). 

    Daniel is an advocate of Science Diplomacy, Open Science and Citizen Science.
