Cassandra Sampaio Baptista

Honorary Senior Researcher

I am currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Glasgow, Scotland (effective 1st July 2020) and honorary researcher in the Plasticity lab (Johansen-Berg Lab) at the WIN centre, University of Oxford.

I welcome interest and inquiries from prospective students and postdocs to join my group at the University of Glasgow.

I graduated with a Dphil (PhD) in 2013, University of Oxford, supervised by Professor Heidi Johansen-Berg and Professor David Bannerman. 

I use a multidisciplinary approach to investigate functional and structural plasticity, from the cellular level to systems levels, in healthy and clinical populations such as stroke survivors. For instance, we are currently using 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 combine MR methods and histological techniques to investigate the underlying cellular mechanism of learning and stroke recovery.
