Roya Jalali, PhD
I did my BSc and MSc in physics in Tehran. Then in 2012, I joint a 4-year PhD programme known as PSIBS (Physical science of imaging in biomedical sciences) at the University of Birmingham. During my PhD, I investigated the neural basis of cerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) using MR techniques under joint supervision of Prof Chris Miall and Dr Joe Galea. Now, as a Post-doctoral fellow in Dr Davinia Fernández-Espejo Lab, I will be studying the neural mechanisms underlying the effects of tDCS as potential interventions to increase external responsiveness in patients with a prolonged disorder of consciousness (PDOC) after severe brain injury.
