Jonni Jonni Hirvonen, PhD Jonni joined the group in 2011 to study neuronal and behavioural scaling laws, and obtained a master's degree in physiology in 2013. He then researched somatosensory awareness in healthy subjects and face recognition deficits in schizophrenia patients for his doctoral studies and graduated with his PhD in 2018.
He now is studying medicine at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.
Anton Anton Tokariev, PhD Anton worked in our group 2013-2016 and graduated in 2015 with his PhD thesis "Studying connectivity in the neonatal EEG."
He then worked in Michael Breakspear's Systems Neuroscience Group at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane, Australia, and now is a postdoctoral researcher at BABA center in Helsinki.

Shrikanth Shrikanth Kulashekar, PhD Shrikanth worked with us 2007-2017 and obtained his master's and PhD degree in neuroscience in this time. The topic of his disseration was "The role of cortical oscillations in the estimation and maintenance of sensory and duration information in working memory."
He is now investigating time perception in Domenica Bueti's group at Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati in Triest, Italy.
Muriel Lobier, PhD Muriel was a member of our group 2012-18, investigating the effects of spatial visual attention on amplitude and phase synchrony in human MEG data. She now is working in research and development at the Finnish Red Cross Blood Bank.
