Julia C. Teale is a postgraduate researcher based at the MacLeodLab at the School of Psychology & Neuroscience, University of St. Andrews, in Scotland. She is particularly interested in memory--why do we find some things very easy to forget whilst other things seem to stick in our minds? How does the brain organize our memories efficiently? How do our memories change over our lifetimes and into older age? Since Teale was little she has always asked a lot of questions, and maybe that is why she now does research! When she is not working, she likes to go walking with her dog Indy in the countryside.
Akira R. O'Connor is a lecturer in the School of Psychology & Neuroscience, University of St. Andrews, in Scotland. He is interested in how our memories work and gets people to do memory tests so that he can understand this better. Sometimes people do these tests online, sometimes in his laboratory and sometimes in brain-scanners at the local hospital. When he's not working, he loves running, reading (fiction and non-fiction) and watching his favorite soccer team: Queens Park Rangers.
