I am a neuroscientist based at the University of Cambridge. I received my BA in psychology and philosophy from Balliol College, Oxford University, in 1997, and my PhD in cognitive neuroscience from St. John’s College, Cambridge University in 2002. I have published research in various fields, including how the brain processes consciousness, attention, memory and intelligence, and the extent that mental training can boost cognitive performance, or even change how we perceive the world. I am the author of a general audience book on consciousness science, The Ravenous Brain, which was chosen as a best book of 2012 in the Wall Street Journal, the Book of the Week at the Times Higher Education magazine, and the September main selection at Scientific American Book Club. I also co-wrote the introductory popular science book, 30 Second Brain. I have written articles on neuroscience and psychology for various popular magazines, including Scientific American Mind, New Scientist, Slate and Wired UK. I have also appeared on various radio shows, to talk about neuroscience, and have given many public talks, including at the London Science Museum, and the Royal Institution.
