Description of PhD:

 

Studies of declarative memory (conscious memory) have become heavily dependent on evidence from neuroimaging, including ERPs and fMRI; relatively little attempt has been made to conduct parallel studies with these two methods. That is the aim of the current proposal.  One aspect of memory that has become increasingly of interest is the investigation of individual differences; this is important for imaging in particular because the imaging methods rely upon the averaging of data across participants. To the extent that individual differences exist, the current findings largely ignore them. The current proposal aims to investigate them. Two main types of individual differences will be investigated; neuropsychological and genetic. Prof Donaldson has expertise in using neuropsychological tests to assess participants, allowing different population profiles to be examined/correlations between test scores and imaging data to be carried out. Prof Lawrie has expertise in the use of genetic, clinical and neurobiological techniques to assess individual differences in brain imaging patterns, cognition and behaviour; ongoing studies in Edinburgh suggest that genetic profiles can be identified that are linked to different patterns of memory performance and different underlying brain activity. The aim of the current proposal is to combine these different approaches whilst investigating memory. The applicants have expertise in the imaging methods, and believe that there is scope for combining them – at first using parallel studies; ultimately by simultaneous multi-modal imaging. The current proposal is intended to investigate and develop multi-model imaging possibilities; memory provides an ideal topic for this because there is a solid base of current single method data for reference
