Rik Henson, PhD
University of Cambridge

Dr. Henson is from University of Cambridge and his primary interest concerns are the recollection of people's memory. Specifically, using the techniques of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electro- and magneto- encephalography (EEG/MEG) to examine brain activity. Even more specifically, in the neural bases of both explicit (conscious) memory and implicit (unconscious) memory, particularly the relationship between recollection, familiarity and priming. A deeper knowledge of these different expressions of memory is important for understanding the memory impairments associated with neurological damage or disease, or with healthy aging and rehabilitation.
