About Dr. David Carey

Reader in Psychology, Bangor University

David Carey studies sensorimotor control processes in healthy volunteers and neurological patients. Current projects include recording and quantifying manual asymmetries in left-handers and right-handers and quantification of attentional biases towards the preferred hand, which may prove a useful marker for cerebral asymmetries for speech and language.

Dr. Carey is an enthusiastic and engaging lecturer, and he’s kindly accepted our invite (and challenge!) to present on presenting effectively [as a neuroscientist].

LNG:ECR is the multi-disciplinary special interest group of young researchers (students, postdocs, PIs) from across the city, with research spanning many diverse areas in neuroscience.

The target audience is new PIs, postdocs and PhD students from the Neuroscience research community, but all are welcome. It will be a great networking opportunity, so we are looking forward to seeing you all in person.
