Description of Phd:

The evaluation of memory is a dynamic process, characterised by the interaction of memory-specific processes, involved in encoding and retrieving memory content, and more general ‘higher-order’ processes, sensitive to the perceived goals and expected reward associated with the evaluative event. I hope to elucidate this interaction via modelling of behavioural recognition data, and aim to localise its neural underpinnings by the use of fMRI, fcMRI and simultaneous EEG-fMRI. Incorporating the influence of higher order information in the evaluation of memory would constitute a significant refinement to existing models of healthy memory function and raise the related possibility of informing our understanding of pathological memory dysfunction, such as that evidenced in dementia.
