Mr Mathew Thomas Kollamkulam


Mathew Thomas Kollamkulam is currently a doctoral researcher in cognitive neuroscience working on a project that investigates how sleep helps to stabilise memories in the human brain. Mathew completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology at University College London (UCL), and worked as a Research Assistant at UCL, where he was involved in research on how limb loss and artificial limbs affect the brain and motor control. He has a particular research interest in the brain plasticity along both short and long timelines.
