Dr Nicolas Dumay
Lecturer in Cognitive Psychology


Research interests

My research effort focuses on the offline changes that occur in memory and how these affect how we acquire, perceive, produce or forget linguistic (but also other types of) information. This means that I study memory consolidation as an object of investigation, but also use it to achieve unmatched conditions in order to test psycholinguistic hypotheses.
