Dr charlotte flavell - Postdoctoral fellow

AREAS OF INTEREST

Charlotte is currently funded by a Leverhulme Trust research grant entitled "Stimulating the destabilisation of fear and traumatic memories". She is interested in memory reconsolidation mechanisms of both appetitive and aversive memories. Charlotte previously worked in the lab on MRC and BBSRC grants, also spending 18 months in Brisbane in Tim Bredy's lab.
