Professor Michael Banissy
Goldsmiths (University of London) and Rogue Resolutions
Professor Michael Banissy is Co-Head of Department of Psychology and Director of the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Lab at Goldsmiths (University of London). Prior to taking up his position at Goldsmiths he worked at University College London where he completed his PhD and worked on a personal Post-Doctoral Fellowships awarded by the British Academy and the Economic and Social Research Council.
He has contributed to several diverse research areas, including synaesthesia, social perception, social cognition, and brain stimulation. The breadth of his work is not only seen in scientific contributions, but also in his engagement to bring science to the public and his effort in connecting science to industry. This has resulted in him receiving several prizes and awards for his research. For example, in 2016, Michael was awarded the British Psychological Society Spearman Medal, and in 2017 the Bertelson Award.
Can transcranial electric stimulation be used to aid cognition?
Recently, transcranial electric stimulation (tES) has been suggested to aid human performance across several domains. Despite this, our understanding of how tES influences the brain, and individual differences in performance change following tES remain limited. I will discuss how these gaps lead to several challenges of using tES as a tool to aid cognition.
