Ms Tigan Schofield
Teaching and Research Associate (TARA) (Human Neuroscience)
School of Psychology (Faculty of Health)
PhD Cognitive Neuroscience - Plymouth University, September 2020 - Present
MSc Neuroimaging: Methods and Applications - Cardiff University, September 2018- October 2019
BSC (Hons) Psychology - Keele University, September 2015 - July 2018
I predominantly teach and assist on the MSc Human Neuroscience programme, mainly focusing on practical implementation of techniques (MRI, EEG and TMS) and supporting data analysis.
I also teach on BSc Psychology Stage 1 and 2 modules concerning research methods content, such as research skills, design, analyses and writing up.
I have a particular interest in how neural correlates of cognition, especially components relating to executive functioning, are attenuated by social and affective factors. Currently, I am working on how this might manifest under forensic contexts such as deception.
