Our research addresses several important questions related to human cognition and emotion regulation:
How are memories for intense emotional experiences stored in the brain ?
What happens to emotional memories during offline periods (e.g. sleep) ?
Can offline memory processes be harnessed as a therapeutic tool ?
Funded by the Medical Research Council, we address these questions with a rigorous research programme that combines experimental psychology, cognitive neuroscience and neurophysiology.
