Why you should listen
Through the process of "reconsolidation," Amy Milton researches whether reconsolidation could be exploited to provide a new form of treatment for mental health disorders.
Her research has shown the promise of this approach in rodent models of drug abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder, and has informed subsequent small-scale human trials of reconsolidation-based treatments.
Milton is a University Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge, where she is the Principal Investigator of the Memories in Neuropsychiatric Disorders (MIND) Lab. She is also the Ferreras-Willetts Fellow in Neuroscience in Downing College, Cambridge.
