Charlotte Stagg is Professor of Human Neurophysiology and heads the Physiological Neuroimaging Group at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford. Her primary research interest is in understanding how the brain adapts to new challenges, focusing in particular in the physiological processes underlying the learning of new motor skills and in the recovery of motor function after stroke. To do this, she combines transcranial stimulation techniques with advanced neuroimaging approaches, especially Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS).

Gavan McNally’s research is concerned with the fundamental psychological and brain mechanisms for learning and motivation, and how these apply to clinical conditions such as addictions, anxiety disorders, and mood disorders. In his lab, they are interested in identifying these mechanisms, at the cellular, circuit, and systems level. They are also interested in translating this fundamental information into next generation treatments of psychological conditions.
