Warm congratulations to MRC Unit D.Phil. student Camille Lasbareilles for winning this year's Simon, Arpi, Marie & John Simonian Prize for Excellence in Leadership! The prize is awarded to an individual who has shown significant leadership qualities during their time at St Edmund Hall in any area, e.g. sport, charity work, journalism, theatre/drama, music, potential future academic leadership, or other outside interests.

Camille has distinguished herself as an active and enthusiastic member of the college. She organised several public engagement events for the Centre for the Creative Brain at St Edmund Hall with Prof. Stagg and Prof. Dupret, including 'Exploring Epilepsy through Art', 'Drawing the Human Brain' and 'Language Arts - Books, Comics and Language Learning'. She has also been involved in other public engagement activities, such as 'WIN-dow on the Brain', where she explained to the general public how non-invasive brain stimulation techniques work.

In her D.Phil at the Unit, Camille investigates the neurophysiological processes that govern motor control and motor learning in the healthy brain, and how these can be modulated using a type of non-invasive brain stimulation called transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS).
