Research Themes

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Systems and Computational Neuroscience


My primary interest concerns how we remember things. Specifically, I use the techniques of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electro- and magneto- encephalography (EEG/MEG) to examine brain activity as healthy volunteers try to remember things in the laboratory. Even more specifically, I am interested in the neural bases of both explicit (conscious) memory and implicit (unconscious) memory, particularly the relationship between recollection, familiarity and priming. A deeper knowledge of these different expressions of memory is important for understanding the memory impairments associated with neurological damage or disease, or with healthy ageing, and the rehabilitation thereof.
