Biography

BHK in Human Kinetics (University of British Columbia, Canada), PhD in Neuromechanics (University of British Columbia, Canada) - investigated the use of stochastic vestibular stimuli to probe the vestibular contribution to movement control. Spent four years as a Post-Doctoral fellow between the Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine (USA) and the Institute of Neurology at University College London (UK) studying visual and vestibular perception and its contribution to determining our orientation relative to the world. Other related topics of research have included investigation of the vestibular contribution to locomotor stability and visual orientation perception in Spinocerebellar Ataxia. Dr. Dakin’s current research focuses on untangling the contribution of different sources of sensory information to the process of movement and movement perception.
