Lab Manager/Research Assistants
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.
Marcel investigates memory consolidation using human single-neuron recordings and iEEG, focusing on the impact of multi-modal stimulation during sleep including closed-loop techniques. With a Medical Degree from the University of Bonn and a Masters in Physics from the University of Toronto, he pursued his PhD in Neuroscience under Prof. Mormann at the University of Bonn. He is funded by the ERC.
Pin-Chun investigates sleep-dependent cognitive enhancement using EEG, fMRI, and iEEG. Prior to joining the lab, she completed her PhD in Cognitive Sciences from the University of California, Irvine (USA), followed by one year of postdoctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania (USA). She is funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
SIMON FAGHEL SOUBEYRAND
Simon is interested in understanding how the specific content of our percepts and experiences guides behaviour. He uses a combination of EEG, psychophysics, and machine learning to probe these processes. Simon completed his PhD at the Université de Montréal and is a Royal Society Newton International Fellow.
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.
Manqi explores memory processing during sleep using EEG, iEEG, and fMRI. She completed her Master's degree in Beijing Normal University and is funded by the China Scholarship Council-University of Oxford Scholarship.
Gloria is interested in understanding the neural mechanisms underlying encoding and retrieval. Prior to coming to Oxford, she was a member of the Dynamic Perception and Memory Lab at Columbia University where she investigated how encoding processes modulate retention in a classroom context. She is a Rhodes Scholar, and, in the future, she hopes to contribute to bridging the gap between cognitive psychology research and education practices.
Nina is a masters student at the School of Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Groningen. Together with Philipp, they are working on a project using EEG and eye-tracking to learn more about memory consolidation and replay during sleep.
Philipp joined the lab to conduct his major research project as part of his M.Res. in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Groningen. Together with Nina, their project investigates the neural underpinnings of memory consolidation and replay during sleep, using EEG and eye-tracking.
Sophia is interested in the connection between working memory and sleep, specifically how plasticity mechanisms important for working memory functions could be supported by sleep. She uses EEG combined with multivariate pattern analyses to investigate the neuronal substrates of working memory. Sophia is completing her PhD at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
