Soraya Dunn, PhD. is a Postdoctoral Scholar who is interested in the neural mechanisms of memory, particularly memory consolidation during sleep. She completed her graduate training at University College London co-supervised by Prof. Jenny Bizley (UCL Ear Institute) & Prof. Daniel Bendor (UCL Institute Behavioural Neuroscience) where she investigated the hippocampus – a region critical for memory- through novel cross-species comparisons. Her current projects include decoding brain-wide activity patterns during sleep to develop a deep brain stimulation paradigm for the enhancement of specific memories. Outside of the lab she likes to go hiking, but really slowly so she can look at all the birds and mushrooms and trees, and anything else that catches her eye.
