In an honour, which comes on top of Prof Nobre becoming a Fellow of the British Academy earlier this year, Kia Nobre has been further recognised for her contribution to medical science.

The prestigious Academia Europaea has invited Professor Nobre to become a member: The organisation celebrates scholarship in sciences, social studies, humanities throughout Europe, and its aim is: 'the advancement and propagation of excellence in scholarship in the humanities, law, the economic, social, and political sciences, mathematics, medicine, and all branches of natural and technological sciences anywhere in the world for the public benefit and for the advancement of the education of the public of all ages in the aforesaid subjects in Europe.’


Anna Christina Nobre (known as Kia Nobre) is a cognitive neuroscientist interested in understanding the principles of the neural systems that support cognitive functions in the human brain. Her current research looks at how neural activity linked to perception and cognition is modulated according to memories, task goals, and expectations. In addition to revealing the basic mechanisms of these large-scale dynamic regulatory mechanisms, she is interested in how these develop over the lifespan, and how they are disrupted in psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders.

Professor Kia Nobre is Director of the Oxford Centre of Human Brain Activity (OHBA).

She is the first incumbent of the chair in Translational Cognitive Neuroscience at Oxford, held jointly between the Departments of Psychiatry and of Experimental Psychology.
