About

Dr Freeman’s doctoral training was at Bristol University, where in 1998 he gained a PhD in Psychology. He then worked as a postdoctoral research fellow, in the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL, until 2007. During that period he travelled to the Weizmann Institute in Israel to work with Dov Sagi, and to the Smith-Kettlewell Institute in San Francisco to work with Preeti Verghese. After his postdoctoral training, he worked for two years teaching Research Methods at Brunel University, before taking his present post as lecturer at City in 2009. His research investigates how the brain resolves the interpretation of ambiguous stimuli, according to the context in which they are encountered. He has also recently been investigating interactions between vision and hearing, finding that the timing of sounds can influence the perceived direction of ambiguous visual motion.
