Research summary

“Stimulating slow wave sleep with auditory tones: a way to slow cognitive ageing?”

My research focuses on sleep and sleep-dependent cognitive processes, such as overnight consolidation of declarative and procedural memories. I’m particularly interested in the potential of using non-invasive closed-loop auditory stimulation in order to manipulate specific sleep parameters such as sleep slow waves or sleep spindles for greater cognitive and physiological benefit in both the young and ageing brain.

I’m a visiting PhD student from the University of Manchester and currently based in the NaPS laboratory of my supervisor Prof Penny Lewis at Cardiff University.
