Nicholas Myers


University Research Lecturer

  • Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow
  • Stipendiary Lecturer in Psychology, New College

Nick is a postdoctoral research fellow working with Mark Stokes in the Attention and Working Memory Lab in the Department of Experimental Psychology. He also works with John Duncan (EP) and Bob Knight (UC Berkeley).

Nick is interested in the control of working memory, and how brain oscillations may act to organize such control. He uses modelling, M/EEG, fMRI, and intracranial recordings to look at these questions.

After a degree in neuroscience from Columbia University in New York, Nick studied psychology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, where he worked on visual attention in healthy adults and in patients with early Alzheimer’s Disease. He came to Oxford for his DPhil on the Wellcome Trust Neuroscience program, where he worked on the neural correlates of attention in short-term memory (with Kia Nobre and Mark Stokes). Nick then spent a year as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Brain and Cognition Lab (PI Nobre).
