Oliver Baumann

Oliver obtained his Diploma (MSc.) in Psychology from the University of Oldenburg (Germany) in 2003 and his PhD from the University of Regensburg (Germany) in 2006. His doctoral thesis investigated the neural correlates of audio-visual motion perception and the role of the neocerebellum in eye movements. Then he spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oslo (Norway) under the supervision of Professor Svein Magnussen on the investigation of the neural correlates of perceptual memory. He is currently employed as a research fellow at the Queensland Brain Institute in Prof. Jason Mattingley's Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory. His present research is on human navigation, with the focus on how human beings use and process visual landmarks for navigating successfully through a novel environment. The research methods used include the assessment of behavioural performance as well as neuroimaging techniques.
