Dr Vincent Giampietro PhD, PGCAPHE
Reader in Neuroscience Education
My current research investigates how the brain changes when we learn. I am studying how you can learn to modify your brain activity in real-time through functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) neurofeedback and how this could eventually become a novel neurotherapy. I am also researching the brain characteristics of entrepreneurial thinking and how these evolve with experience and success; the aim is to design neuroscience evidenced-based entrepreneurial thinking education. I also occupy a leading education role, both within the department, as Neuroimaging Education Lead, and at faculty level, as Chair of Faculty Postgraduate & Online Assessment Boards and Technology Enhanced Learning Academic Lead. I believe that nothing is too difficult to teach, especially when making full use of contemporary pedagogical approaches, of e-learning technologies, and of the vast amount of open resources available online.
