Prior to her time as a MSc student at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL, Polina completed a BSc in Psychology at the University of Exeter. Polina is interested in the relationship between sleep and plasticity and supports the day-to-day running of the lab.
Jude explores neural activity relating to the formation and retrieval of memories, with a particular interest in using closed-loop systems to influence memory performance. He is funded by the BBSRC.
Mathew is interested in using multimodal brain imaging methods (EEG, fMRI and structural MRI) to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying memory consolidation in humans. He is funded by the Clarendon Scholarship.
Marcel investigates mechanisms underlying memory consolidation using single unit recordings from the Medial Temporal Lobe (MTL) using iEEG in humans. He is particularly interested in how newly acquired memories are stored and reactivated during sleep. Marcel is completing his PhD at the University of Bonn.

MC investigates the neural mechanisms of episodic memory using MEG and EEG. Particularly, she studies how brain oscillations help to orchestrate associative memory retrieval and post-encoding reactivation. She is a Lecturer in Experimental Psychology at Rey Juan Carlos University (Madrid).
Pin-Chun investigates mechanisms underlying sleep-dependent memory using EEG, fMRI, and iEEG. She is particularly interested in how brain oscillations orchestrate processes of different memory domains during sleep. Pin-Chun earned her PhD in Cognitive Sciences from the University of California, Irvine (USA).
