Anna Guttesen

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging in the Plasticity Group, supervised by Prof Heidi Johansen-Berg and Dr Melanie Fleming. My work focuses on the role of sleep for motor memory consolidation and recovery after stroke. In particular, I am interested how sleep-related EEG markers and sleep-associated consolidation change after stroke, and whether we can enhance them using paradigms tested in sleep laboratories (e.g. targeted memory reactivation).

Prior to my work at Oxford, I completed a PhD at the Department of Psychology, University of York, supervised by Dr Scott Cairney and Prof Gareth Gaskell. In my PhD, I investigated sleep’s role in overnight consolidation and next-day learning of declarative memories.
