My PhD research was in reality monitoring, which refers to the way in which we discriminate in memory between what was real and what was only imagined. I worked under Dr. Jon Simons in his Memory Lab, based in the Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute (BCNI) at the University of Cambridge.
