Dr Joel Winston

Senior Clinical Lecturer

  • Consultant Neurophysiologist

Biography

I joined KCL in September 2020. I am dually trained as a cognitive neuroscientist and a clinical neurophysiologist.

Clinically I specialise in electroencephalography (EEG) and the diagnosis and management of patients with epilepsy and related disorders.

I undertook undergraduate studies in medicine and neuroscience at the University of Cambridge before moving the University College London (UCL) to study on the MB PhD program.  My PhD concerned emotive aspects of face perception. 

After qualification and junior doctor jobs around London via an academic foundation program and academic clinical fellowship, I was awarded a Wellcome Trust postdoctoral research fellowship to study interoception (visceral sensory perception) and symptom perception, with research undertaken at UCL and NorthWestern University (Chicago). 

I completed clinical training in neurophysiology and then a clinical fellowship in complex epilepsy at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. 

Research Interests
