About Matt Craddock

I am a Lecturer in Psychology, and joined the department in January 2018. From 2014 to 2017, I worked as a post-doc at the University of Leeds with Dr Donna Lloyd on a BBSRC-funded project on somatosensory and tactile misperception, using electroencephalography (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS). From 2010 to 2013, I worked at the University of Leipzig, Germany, with Prof. Dr. Matthias Müller, on a DFG project investigating mechanisms of visual object recognition using EEG.
