Catz Fellow Elected to the British Academy

Catz Fellow and Professor of Translational Cognitive Neuroscience, Kia Nobre, has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Kia is a cognitive neuroscientist interested in understanding the principles of the neural systems that support cognitive functions in the human brain. She now researches how neural activity linked to perception and cognition changes according to memories, motivations, expectations and task goals. In addition to revealing the basic mechanisms of these large-scale dynamic regulatory mechanisms, she is interested in how these develop over the lifespan, and how they are disrupted in psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders.

Kia was elected in recognition of her outstanding research, and was one of 42 highly distinguished UK academics to join the British Academy on 16 July 2015. This takes the total of living Fellows to over 1,000.
