Andrea Greve

Andrea is an Investigator Scientist at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at Cambridge. Her research focusses on examining theories of learning by using behavioural and functional brain imaging techniques (MRI and EEG/MEG) with the aim to understand the cognitive and neural mechanisms that support episodic and semantic long-term memory in humans.

Andrea started her training in Germany at Saarland University, received her PhD from the University of Edinburgh and had a fellowship at Cardiff University before joining the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit where she is now conducting a number of memory-related research projects. Andrea is a guest lecturer at the Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge and has been teaching a variety of courses in Cognitive Neuroscience.   

Research Interests

Andrea’s current research focuses on understanding the cognitive and neural basis of human episodic memory. She is particularly interested in episodic encoding and retrieval processes and their specific interplay with semantic memories. By using a combination of behavioral and functional brain imaging techniques (MRI and EEG/MEG) Andrea is able to test different cognitive theories to ultimately advance our understanding how brain networks might support different memory processes. Furthermore, Andrea interested in using neural network simulations to improve our insight into how cognitive theories link in with observed neural dynamics.
