Scott Cairney joins the SLAM lab

Posted on 9 July 2012

Dr. Cairney hopes to reactivate memories in the SLAM lab!

Scott Cairney has joined the SLAM lab on a 3 year postdoctoral research fellowship entitled 'Reactivating memories during sleep'. Working with Gareth Gaskell, Scott will be investigating how external cues can be used to reactivate memories whilst we sleep and ultimately manipulate what we remember the next day.

Scott obtained his PhD in Psychology from the University of Manchester with a project entitled "The mechanisms and specificity of emotional memory consolidation over sleep". For more information email scott.cairney@york.ac.uk.
