Gina Rippon, Ph.D., is professor of cognitive neuroimaging in the Aston Brain Centre at Aston University, Birmingham UK.  She uses brain imaging techniques to investigate the relationship between patterns of brain activation and human sensory, cognitive, and affective processes. Her work also focuses on ways of generating neurocognitive profiles, which involves investigating the relationship between cortical activity patterns and cognitive and behavioural abilities (or disabilities) of individuals. She has served as president of the British Psychophysiology Society (now the British Association of Cognitive Neuroscience) and received a Ph.D. in psychophysiology from the University of London.
