The Department of Psychology at Lund University, Sweden (https://www.psy.lu.se/en/) invites applications for a doctoral student within the research project: "When remembering affects new learning: Temporal dynamics of memory integration revealed by EEG and machine learning techniques".
Episodic memory enables us to revisit the past to inform and shape current thinking and behaviour. Retrieval cues in the present bring to mind past episodes by triggering the reactivation of stored memories. Recent influential work in cognitive neuroscience has shown that reactivated memories influence the encoding of new episodes, allowing us to integrate overlapping events. However, the neural mechanisms mediating such memory integration and its behavioural implications remain to be specified.
The overarching goal of this research project is to shed light on the boundary conditions for memory integration. The current project will capitalize on recent advances in machine learning and employ multivariate pattern analysis (MVPA) of high-temporal resolution electroencephalographic (EEG) data to measure memory reactivation as it unfolds during new learning, and to give insight into the temporal dynamics of memory integration.
