RESEARCH INTERESTS

Dr. Daniel Lametti studies how adult brains learn to produce, maintain, and remember complex movements, such as hand movements and speech production. He tackles this problem using a variety of methods including behavioural manipulations, non-invasive brain stimulation, and computational modelling. He is particularly interested in the role of the brain’s action systems in perception.

Dr. Lametti is happy to hear from students and postdocs interested in working in his lab.
