Gareth Gaskell and Jelena Mirkovic awarded ESRC grant

Congratulations to Gareth and Jelena!

Professor Gareth Gaskell and Dr Jelena Mirkovic have been awarded a three-year grant by the ESRC entitled "Systematicity and consistency in the consolidation of word knowledge". The research will use the sleep lab to examine how the brain learns and consolidates different types of new memory while awake, and during sleep. The studies will have a particular focus on the acquisition of language, as a means of testing recent theories of memory consolidation.
