Destroying Memories: How This Could Improve Our Mental Health
If we understand how memories persist, we can exploit this to treat mental health disorders. Amy is the Director of the Memories in Neuropsychiatric Disorders (MiND) Lab in the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge, and the Ferreras-Willetts Fellow in Neuroscience at Downing College, Cambridge. Her research focuses on how emotional memories form, persist, and can be updated in the brain, and aims to use this knowledge to develop new therapies for mental health disorders such as drug addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder.
