Marleen J. Schoenfeld

BSc MSc


DPhil Student

I am a DPhil student supervised by Prof Charlotte Stagg, Dr Catharina Zich and Heidi Johansen-Berg.

My D.Phil research is focused on complex bimanual motor learning. In order to study bimanual motor learning, I am collecting neurophysiological and neuroimaging data using methods such as Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and non-invasive brain stimulation, specifically transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS).

I am particularly interested in the underlying mechanisms of bimanual motor learning, specifically, the communication between our brain hemispheres in order to study neuronal plasticity and its potential implications in both health and disease.


Prior to my DPhil, I graduated with a MSc from the University of Vienna, Austria having worked at the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna
