Michaela Dewar

Michaela is a Research Fellow in Human Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh. Her research interests are memory, forgetting and dementia. More specifically, she is exploring (i) how the brain processes new memories, (ii) how these processes are disrupted by other ongoing cognitive activity in patients with memory impairment, and (iii) how memory can be improved in these patients by shielding the memory system from such disruption.

Andy Gardner

Andy Gardner is an evolutionary biologist at the University of St Andrews. His work lies at the interface of theoretical population genetics and behavioural ecology, and focuses on social evolution. Andy is fascinated by Darwinian adaptation: natural selection expains the appearance of design in the living world, but there remains controversy as to whether this design manifests at the level of genes, individuals or whole societies.
