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.
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) and is a Marie-Curie Fellow.
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.
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.
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.
