Cassandra Sampaio Baptista

Senior Researcher

I am currently Lecturer (Assistant Professor)  at the University of Glasgow, Scotland (effective 1st July 2020). I welcome interest from students and postdocs to join my group.

I completed my undergraduate and Msc studies in Portugal (Universidade do Minho) and then moved to the University of Oxford to attend the Msc Neuroscience course. I received my Dphil (PhD) in 2013 from the University of Oxford under Professor Heidi Johansen-Berg lab and Professor David Bannerman supervision. 

My current research focuses on functional and structural plasticity with learning and rehabilitation. For instance, we use real-time neurofeedback fMRI to investigate how modulation of brain activity can lead to functional and structural brain changes and behavioural improvements in healthy participants and stroke survivors.

Additionally, I use a combination of MR methods and histological techniques to investigate the underlying cellular mechanism of learning and stroke recovery.
