Personal profile

Research interests

Ben is an expert in the cognitive neuroscience of memory, with a particular focus on the link between episodic memory and neural oscillations. To understand these interactions, Ben uses a wide range of methods including MEG, fMRI and sensory stimulation.


Ben completed his PhD in the School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham, focusing on how a division of labour between neocortical and hippocampal oscillations supports the formation and retrieval of long-term memories. He then moved to LMU in Munich, Germany, to explore the role of thalamic oscillations in perception and navigation. In April 2022, Ben returned to Birmingham to take up a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship and test the causal role of neural oscillations in episodic memory.
