Willingness to take PhD students
Kim Shapiro, in collaboration with colleagues, published the first paper on the ‘attentional blink’ phenomenon, which has attracted great interest on the part of many scientists. The original publication has been cited over 1000 times and approximately 500 reports on the same topic have followed from it. He employs a wide range of neuroscience approaches and tools in his research, including functional imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and event-related potentials (ERPs), and magnetoencephalography (MEG).
Professor Shapiro has received recent funding for his research from the BBSRC, the ESRC, the Human Frontiers of Science Programme, and the Wellcome Trust.
Professor Shapiro supervises postgraduate research in all his areas of interest. Those wishing to apply to work in his lab are encouraged to contact him directly by email.
